On August 4th 1265 the Battle of Evesham took place in which royal forces defeated those of rebel Simon de Montfort, who was killed bravely fighting in the fray. Each year the Simon de Montfort Society organise commemorative events on the weekend nearest the anniversary, starting with a wreath laying ceremony at the battle memorial in Abbey Park followed by a walk along the Battlefield Trail. On the Sunday evening there is a short commemorative service at Battlewell.
