In February 1645, a battle was fought between Parliament and Royalists over the strategic seaports of Weymouth and Melcombe in Dorset. The event is known as the Crabchurch Conspiracy.
To commemorate the 370th anniversary of Parliament’s victory, on Saturday February 28th a concert will be held in Weymouth, featuring live music by the Dolmen and readings by the eminent historian Professor Ronald Hutton and Jane McKell, actress and founding director of AsOne. The event is organized by Mark Vine, historian and author of the Crabchurch Conspiracy.
