The International Living History Festival (ILHF) provides an event for all those with an interest and love of history. From the historical market, Living History displays, and immersive have-a-go hands-on history activities, it is also a meeting place and fabulous opportunity for all, visitors and re-enactors alike, to spend a weekend visiting and discussing all periods of our historical past.

Many of Europe’s best artisans, craftsmen and traders are on hand, happy to advise and provide a huge array of items and replicas of historical heritage. This Festival of history has become the primary multi-period market place for re-enactors, historical interpreters and historical enthusiasts across Europe. The added attraction, is the Festival is located at Cressing Temple Barns, a fabulous Templar Farm from 12th Century England.
