Enjoy the adventures of Napoleon at Painshill Park
History makes a comeback with a day of Napoleonic adventures next month.
Watch cannon, rockets and firing demonstrations over two days in a Cobham garden where a Napoleonic re-enactment will take audiences back in time to the French Revolution and its associated wars.
Visit a historical camp as it would have been, and take children along for a mock drill.
A series of historical lectures are also on offer with Canaletto along the Thames by Nick Pollard and Sunbury and Shepperton Local History Society kicking things off.
This will delve into the route of the river from central London to Windsor through the works of Venetian painter Canaletto.
