Marlborough 300 Pageant

About

This summer Blenheim Palace is celebrating the life of arguably Britain's greatest soldier and statesman with a spectacular outdoor event.

On 30th - 31st July the Oxfordshire UNESCO World Heritage Site hosts Marlborough 300 – a pageant to commemorate the 300th anniversary of John Churchill, the 1st Duke of Marlborough.

A courageous leader in battle, Marlborough's victories over Louis XIV forever changed the face of Europe and led to Sir Winston Churchill, his ancestor who was born at Blenheim, to describe him as Britain's greatest ever general.

The Pageant will tell the story of John Churchill's early life, from his birth in 1650 to his emergence in society and at Court, his role as a soldier in the Sedgemoor campaign of 1685, and his relationship with his beloved wife Sarah.

With two exciting Arena shows each day re-enacting a Horse Race Meeting at the Court of Charles II and a battle from 1685, you can expect action, horses, muskets, flags, drums and cavalry charges.
