Intrested in reenacting - Easter

Post by Pete1975 »


I am interested in reenacting medieval and wondered if there were any events going on over Easter. I will be in the midlands but happy to travel. I would like to be able to chat to reenactors and look at equipment at markets.

Anything going on?

Many Thanks

There will be a big Livery & Maintenance event at Warwick Castle. There will be plenty of re-enactors to chat to and equipment to look at but there won’t be anybody trading. Livery & Maintenance are an umbrella group for various C15th (Wars of the Roses) groups

Over the Easter bank holiday the MSS will be at Heddingham castle. There should be a few traders, plus the usual mix of living history, demos of weapons armour, fighting styles, falconer, archery competition and skermishes and battle.

why not go along to the The Orginal re-enactors Market - google it you'll get all details of exactly where it is . I am not being unhelpful I just don't drive and consequently am rubbish at giving directions to people who do ( but not far from Coventry is about as good as I get )next weekend and meet up with some medieval types there as well and then go and look at the re-enactments as well?

There’s a country in Europe where they treat their ex soldiers with pride no waits for medical treatment after injuries received during service, no amensia from the government. Cant for the life of me recall where it is but I know exactly where it is not.

The Black Maunch and others will be reenacting the "Battle" of Derby (more of a big skirmish really but so was St.Albans 1 and no-one calls that a fisticuff) near Derby, funny enough. Go to re-enactors wanted for more information.
