Battle of Evesham Medieval Festival

Step back in time at the Battle of Evesham Medieval Festival, taking place on August 3rd and 4th, 2024, at Crown and Corporation Meadows in Evesham. This event is free and open to everyone, offering a full weekend of mediaeval excitement and education. You’ll see history come to life as re-enactors from across the country recreate the famous Battle of Evesham, a key moment that helped shape the democracy we have today.

Aside from the thrilling battle scenes, the festival will feature a mediaeval camp where you can explore how people lived in the 13th century. Learn about old cooking methods, see weapons from the era, and find out how they managed healthcare with period medicine demonstrations. There will be a grand parade with knights in armour, mediaeval music, dance, and even a mini Trebuchet launch.

For families, there are treasure trails and activities, along with falconry and equine displays. Enjoy a variety of food and drink options at the stalls, and maybe even catch some traditional crafts in action. This festival is a great way to immerse yourself in history and have fun with the whole family.

Emile Souvagie – Clarinet

Emile Souvagie, an accomplished clarinettist, began his musical journey at the Lemmensinstituut High School in Louvain, studying under Greet Severens. His passion for music led him to the Royal Conservatory of Brussels where he trained with Benjamin Dieltjens, earning both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees. Emile expanded his expertise by studying in Stockholm and Cologne, where he enriched his skills and knowledge. He has also held the position of principal clarinet in both the Dutch National Youth Orchestra and the Youth Orchestra Flanders, showcasing his exceptional talent.

Joining him on stage is Alexander Declercq, a skilled pianist whose musical education started at the Stedelijk Conservatorium van Brugge. After his initial training, Alexander pursued further studies at the Koninklijk Conservatorium in Brussels. He has a strong affinity for solo pieces, although he delights equally in chamber and orchestral music.

Alexander is also a proud member of Young Musicians Bruges, a group known for its vibrant and dynamic performances. Together, Emile and Alexander are set to perform on Saturday, 16 November 2024, promising an evening of exquisite music that captures the depth and beauty of their artistry.
