The Battle of Poitiers, Warwick Castle

This audio-visual experience situated in Guy’s Tower of Warwick Castle educates visitors about a major battle of the Hundred Years’ War between England and France in 1356. Using a famous painting of the battle as inspiration, we brought the infamous Devile Warwicke and his troops to life.  

The circular room contains 4 large UHD LCD screens which depict the battle through 4 minutes of character animation and motion graphics as archers let loose a volley of arrows, knights charge through defences on horseback and soldiers clash swords and shields across the battlefield. With voice narration and an immersive battle soundscape throughout, the circular chamber guides the visitors through this important and bloodthirsty battle!
