Planning is well under way for the commemoration of the 370th Anniversary of the Crabchurch Conspiracy, Weymouth & Dorsets’ bloodiest ever conflict.

The organising team meet regularly and the excellent Ocean Room at Weymouth Pavilion has been booked for the Crabchurch Concert on the 28th February 2015, featuring THE DOLMEN … Professor Ronald Hutton … Kit Berry … & Cap’n Steve Howl.

We are able this year to reduce the price of tickets to just ten pounds and everything looks set for an amazing commemoration over the weekend of 27th February – 1st March.

The weekend kicks off in fine style with a concert by Scotland’s finest and most famous Celtic/Medieval rock band SAOR PATROL and there will also be re-enactments, a living history display, a mock trial & the execution by hanging of the captured Crabchurch Conspirators.

Stonewylde author Kit Berry will be visiting schools along with the chair of the Dolmen Grove Diane Narraway and Colonel William Sydenham himself, Steve Piper in full 17th century costume, where they will be encouraging local kids to produce artwork and writing on a Crabchurch theme and teaching them all about their local Crabchurch history.

On the evening of the Crabchurch Concert itself, Professor Ronald Hutton will be giving one of his famous and most excellent talks. This year his subject is Oliver Cromwell. This will take place prior to the Dolmen’s concert where he will join them with Kit Berry on stage to perform the Crabchurch Conspiracy album live.
