A MULTI-period living history event in Rhuddlan saw more than 1,000 people attend its first day, before adverse weather caused the cancellation of the second.

No Man’s Land was held at Bodrhyddan Hall on April 6, but fell foul of Storm Kathleen the following day.

It featured more than 600 re-enactors, firing demonstrations, living history displays, live music, refreshments, and a beer tent.

Tom Rowley-Conwy, helping to organise No Man’s Land, thanked those who attended and who assisted in difficult circumstances amid the poor weather.

He said: “We are obviously extremely disappointed that we had to cancel the second day of No Man's Land due to Storm Kathleen, but are heartened by the overwhelmingly positive response from the public.

“Having to cut the event short was a difficult decision but clearly the correct one, echoed by re-enactors and visitors alike.

“A special thanks must go to the indispensable teams who stayed behind to help recover groups from both the public car park and main site.”

Tom also confirmed that No Man's Land will return in 2025, meanwhile.

He added: “Even with such challenging conditions, No Man's Land still saw over 1,300 committed members of the public who braved the winds to support this wonderful educational event.

“Thanks again to all of the dedicated re-enactors, living historians, traders, caterers and bar staff who ensured that the public still got to experience some of the show.”
