The seventh edition of the Battle for Grolle will take place in 2019 on October 18, 19 and 20. This has been announced by the organization.
It is well known that the Battle for Grolle is the world biggest 17th century reenactment event. During the previous edition there was great interest from the press. Not only was the event covered on the frontpage of the biggest daily newspaper in the Netherlands (“De Telegraaf”), but was also an item during prime-time-news broadcast on Dutch national TV (“NOS 8 uur journal”) as well as on various other commercial- and regional TV stations.
During the previous battle, multiple documentaries were recorded, one of which will be broadcasted on national TV later this year. And like any earlier edition, more and more citizens from Groenlo participated actively during the 3-day battle, in which the city of Groenlo jointly returns back to the year 1627.
