Heroes at Highclere

Highclere Castle marks 100 years since the end of WW1 with a weekend of events in honour of those who served and saved in conflicts across the world in the past and today.

  • Date

The Earl and Countess of Carnarvon have chosen a weekend to welcome you to Highclere to commemorate the end of the First World War and, through it, to raise money to support those who have fought, and are still engaged in combat around the world.

Lady Almina Carnavon transformed Highclere into a hospital during the First World War, with an operating theatre in the Castle’s “Arundel” bedroom which will be recreated and open for tours over the weekend.

Don’t miss the opportunity to take a closer look at the costumes of the era, to listen to some well known authors and journalists or even to work up an appetite dancing the Charleston with the Gatsby Guys and Girls.

There will also be vintage car displays, the Tiger-9 flying team, a tent detailing the history of flight, cream tea, football and lots more.

Please note that on the Sunday morning Highclere are holding a short service at approximately 11am to commemorate the airmen from World War Two who crashed in the hills around Highclere.
