Monmouth Rebellion Living History Day

What a wonderful Summer event for Colyton it was in June 2015. In addition to The Taunton Garrison’s military and living history display, there were many attractions throughout the town and its environs, including:

Colyton’s town square became a street market selling local crafts and produce

Our local folk were dressed in period costumes

Lots of outlets for food including our great pubs, cafés and restaurants

Young and old were singing and dancing in the streets to fantastic street acts

Theatrical antics from Colyton Theatre Group

Original prizes for best shop window display, stall and costume

Not forgetting a glossy programme of the day available for sale from our marshals

Everybody received a very warm welcome and thorough enjoyed themselves

“As dozens of men from Colyton left to join the rebellion, troops loyal to the King were active in the town and valley to stop others going”
