The Besieged City – Chichester in the Civil War

by Hilly on June 8, 2017

Captain William Waller from the Parliamentarian Forces, 1642

For the Chichester Festival this year Peter will be conducting a special walking tour about the siege our city underwent in the English Civil War around Christmas time 1642!
The tour will include those events within the city leading up to the siege, the various actions that happened once the firing started and the immediate aftermath. A few long term effects of the siege can still be seen today. Some of the many colourful characters who took part in the siege, both Royalist and Parliamentarian, will be mentioned, and some information about their lives will be included in a short handout for clarity.

Take a look at the calendar here on the website to see the dates and times of Peter’s tours.
