Martin, is it a particular dateline or a broad multi-period show? I'm quite tempted, wondering whether nice woolly hats and stockings would go down well given the time of year :lol:

With my stall, a lot of my hats and hose are Tudor or later, would that be a problem do you think as long as most of my stock was medieval and of course all clearly differentiated as to period, or are they pretty strict on the cut off point being medieval?

My Dutch is almost as rusty as my Arabic and Russian.

Can anyone provide some more information about this event?

Best wishes

Is there a "plastic camping area" as well as the "authenty" trading tent area? (We could probably stick a small sleeping tent inside the burgundian if need be.) Is there a charge for an electricity supply? And if so, how much? What exactly is the site, looks amazing on Googlearth? What facilities are on site, (food, shopping, beer, etc.)

Thanks for the help,
Best wishes
David

Hi David, its definatly worth a punt but if your only selling to reenactors then its not so good, if you sell to MOPs as well then there are loads of em, with xmas money to spend and nowhere to spend it ( Holland closes down over xmas in the countryside or it did when I lived there lol) :D
