“For the first edition, we were 250”, assures Éric Borny, vice-president of the Sully-sur-Loire festival committee. For the fifteenth of the Historic Hours, there will be nearly 1,350 re-enactors. “Every new party is a new adventure!”

Less than two months from the big day, the organizing association has unveiled the program of festivities, which promises to be rich and attractive. (see below). After a 2021 edition turned upside down by the Covid-19, the largest multi-era gathering in France is reconnecting with traditions and will be held in May, on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22, in the grounds of the Château de Sully-sur-Loire.

The 2022 edition will be marked by the absence of Russian troops, all eras combined. A joint decision by the festival committee and the municipality. “We welcome Ukrainians to Sully-sur-Loire. So it seemed logical to us not to bring in the Russian troops.”, justifies Patrick Helaine, co-president of the festival committee and deputy mayor in charge of communication and animation. “Boxes” will be placed at the entrance to the park, in order to collect donations for the Ukrainian cause.

The year 2022 marks the 110th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic in the Atlantic Ocean. A large tableau vivant around the famous liner will be offered by the Cherbourg 44 association. “She is working, in particular, on the reconstruction of a cabin. The volunteers will be in 1912 outfits”, reveals Éric Borny.

“There will also be a significant Scottish presence”, announces the vice-president, justified by the battle of Old Byland, which opposed the kingdom of Scotland to the kingdom of England, in 1322. A decisive battle won by Robert I, against King Edward II of England.

Thirteen new bands will take part in Historic Hours, including four from Belgium. “A great novelty!” They will represent Belgian gendarmes, present at the Franco-Belgian border posts, in 1940.

… and Romans “Caesar style”

The arrival of Romans “Caesar style” is to be underlined.

We didn’t have this version of the Roman, which we see in Asterix, says Éric Borny. They will not be numerous, they come as scouts.

As usual, the multi-period market, made up of around a hundred exhibitors, will present gourmet products and traditional objects. A catering with drinks will also be offered. Visitors will be able to taste ham on the spit, truffade, Gallic sandwiches, pancakes and waffles.
