Description

Take the King’s Shilling and join us for a day of explosions!

Every wondered what it would be like to load and fire a real black powder musket? Well, now’s your chance! We have teamed up with some highly skilled local re-enactors from the 32nd Cornwall Regiment of Foot to offer you this amazing course.

This course is open to those 18 and over (photographic ID will be required). We suggest that participants have their own personal insurance.

This course will cover:

• The History of the Musket
• Drill
• Handling
• Loading
• Firing

On the day you can also be assessed for a certificate from the Napoleonic Association in flintlock musket firing and safety!
