Event Details


The 1643 Siege of Gloucester is one of the pivotal moments of the English Civil War. After the success of the ‘Royalist Summer’, Charles I came to grief at Gloucester as commander Edward Massie and the townsfolk stood resolute for 26 days against 30,000 Royalist soldiers.

Leading Civil War historian Mark Turnbull is joined by well-known historians Phil Moss and Jon Eeles to explore the strategic importance of the stand-off, what life was like for the imprisoned townsfolk, and the impact of the Siege on the city and nation’s history.
