    The Battle of Castillon, Bergerac, France

    July/August


    The Battle of Castillon

    The Battle of Castillon – celebrating the last battle of the Hundred Years War. Castillon stage a fantastic evening on several summer evenings. Performances start at 10.00p.m. duration 2½hours. Meals available in the “medieval tavern”. Highly recommended.

    Performed on a natural arena encompassing 17 acres, within firing range of the original battle ground, 800 volunteers, including 500 actors and 50 horseback riders, re-enact the Battle of Castillon.
    The two captivating hours, filled with stunts, special effects and explosive expertise are combined with the everyday life of the Middle Ages, rural scenes set in a farm or an inn or by the well, scenes from the grape harvest, shooting parties and market day with street sellers and a travelling dentist!
    It is performed, as the producer Éric Le Collen says, “ With the precision of the cinema, the sensitivity of the theatre and the dimension of the opera.”
