King Charles I to return to Southwell for Bramley Apple Festival
King Charles I is to return to Southwell — almost 400 years after he spent his last night in the town.
Historical re-enactor Daniel Williams will attend the Bramley Apple Festival on Saturday as the historical monarch.
The 48-year-old first decided to recreate King Charles I in 2017 to share the king’s history across the UK.
He said: “I gradually started to trace his story and I thought why is such a big story not being talked about?
“He was a man of music and had great taste in clothes for the time.”
This appearance at the festival will be Daniel’s third and he will be unveiling a new historical outfit, which he described as his most elaborate to date, with feathers and a heavily-embellished medallion.
Daniel is supported by Princess Diana’s brother, historian Earl Spencer, in his journey to spread the king’s story.
He will celebrate the festival’s return after lockdown and meeting visitors, who can quiz him on his extensive knowledge.
Daniel added: “My portrayal of King Charles I is like he has just stepped out of a time machine.”
