NAM 20mm Waterloo Model

20th - 23rd October 2021

Chelsea, London

Come and visit Waterloo Uncovered at the National Army Museum from the 19th – 23rd October in support of the exhibition of a 20mm model of the Battle of Waterloo. This incredible diorama has been created with huge effort across many countries. The full expanse of the model would cover more than a tennis court in size and has been created using current history and archaeology to make the model the most accurate in current creation. The model will be in place throughout the week at the National Army Museum, with a number of evening events hosted by Waterloo Uncovered.

To find out about the model, please contact: events@waterloouncovered.com

Stansted Unlocked

10th- 11th July 2021

Stoughton, West Sussex

This year Waterloo Uncovered were thrilled to be involved in ‘Stansted Unlocked’ at Stansted House in West Sussex on the 10th and 11th July 2021.  It was a weekend extravaganza combining cricket, history and fun! Visitors were treated to a wealth of historic interest and activities with displays that revealed the colourful history of the Estate and the Ponsonby family including the sword that General Sir William Ponsonby used at the Battle of Waterloo.  Outside in the Park, the Waterloo theme continued with Reenactors from the Napoleonic period showing off their Cavalry and Musketry skills and demonstrating what it was like to live in a military camp on the eve of the battle. We had a wonderful weekend and enjoyed meeting everyone there enjoying the Waterloo themed fun!
