This event was cancelled in 2020 due to the Covid outbreak so is now being held this year. The event is celebrating the 400th birthday of Peart Tree Church Southampton. The first Anglican Church consecrated in England. The final event of the year takes place on 18th September 2021 when they are hosting a small local history fair reflecting on 400 years of the church’s history, and other activities during the day. 

In the 18th century is was a very fashionable chapel for those living on the east side of the river Itchen, mainly East India Company families, and the green was often used for military displays and even a mock attack to simulate a landing in France. There was also a fatal duel between two officers. So the 79th Cameron Highlanders will be in attendance, having a small living history camp, the soldiers will perform some marching and musket drill, and the surgeon will will be there in case of any accidents! And will of course will be there to answer any questions that you may want to ask. Come along and enjoy the day, there will be something for all of the family!
