Victorian Military Weekend

When? 20 Jul 2019 to 21 Jul 2019
Where? Nothe Fort - Weymouth

  • Victorian Military Weekend

The 'Ragged Victorians – ‘The Great Unwashed' are an award-winning living history group, re-enacting the lower classes of Victorian England, c1851.

They will be taking up residence over the weekend of Saturday 20th & Sunday 21st July at the Nothe Fort, where they will be ‘living’ in the tunnels and cellars under the Fort.

The "Ragged Victorians" offer a variety of characters and skills, that include street history at general events and fayres, educational talks (both first and third person to suit needs) and living history at historic sites. They can also provide specific activities within events.

Back in the day when a shilling was a week’s wage, when even 'Pure' (Dogs Dung) was a valuable source of income, low class Victorians were living by whatever means they could. With no homes, no income and no benefit system for support, an honest day’s work could mean labouring the most degrading jobs in the world, for little or scant reward.

Our illustrious reputation for attention to detail, ensures we successfully capture an episode of history for you to experience. Second to none, our authentic impression of what life was like, in Victorian ruled England, c1851, has become world class
