Scots victorious over the English!                            

For many years, Scotland was ruled by the English.
Then, on 24 June 1314, led by Robert the Bruce,
the Scots defeated the English and gained their independence.
This victory was won at the Battle of Bannockburn.

During 21-22 June 2014, Bannockburn (Victoria) hosted a weekend of fun community activities, culminating in a re-enactment of the 1314 Battle of Bannockburn at the main event on Sunday 22 June – a festival including a re-enactment of the 1314 battle held at the Bannockburn Golf Club. The weekend was a truly remarkable event for the township of Bannockburn and the Golden Plains Shire.

The event was promoted throughout Australia and internationally to attract a large number of participants and visitors to the shire. The profits made from the event will go towards local and international charitable works.

The main festival event on Sunday 22 June 2014 featured a re-enactment of the Battle of Bannockburn, jousting, pipe bands, Highland dancing, a medieval village, Scottish folk bands, roving entertainers, children's activities, Scottish Clans, Scottish market stall, medieval village, archery and much more...

Everyone was encouraged to wear some tartan or dress in Scottish attire or other appropriate garb.
