The Pattern. HM 33rd Regiment of Foot 1770 -1785 at Fort Amherst

 This group did their first event of 2022 and it looks like a perfect match for the group to be at Fort Amherst. They wrote:

The Pattern participated in its first public event of 2022 last weekend, at Fort Amherst in Chatham, Kent.
Fort Amherst was constructed in 1756 at the southern end of the Brompton lines of defence, to protect the south-eastern approaches to Chatham Dockyard and the River Medway against a French invasion. The 33rd was one of the regiments that constructed it.
From Friday to Sunday, we garrisoned the Fort, living in the reconstructed barracks, training on the parade square, mounting sentries and talking to numerous members of the public.
