Re-enactment groups in Nottingham.

Postby Sibanu » Sun Aug 21, 2011 4:16 pm

I'm soon to begin my first year studying Archaeology and Ancient history at the University of Nottingham and I've decided to look into re-enacting during my time in Nottingham. As my course covers a wide range of periods from prehistory to late medieval my interest range is equally wide and no specific period stands out to me as of yet more than others, so if there any societies which you think would appeal to me please let me know.

Re-enactment is new to me and I've never partaken in anything like this before so I have no prior expectations to look for, though I hope to find a dedicated and pleasant group to join. Thanks for any help!

• C18th: Highwaymen of Stand and Deliver and minstrel Trevor James
• WWI: Manchester Regiment, 1914-18
• WWII: The Lost Patrol, 1939-45 Allied Association and Virtue to Victory

Conroi De Vey - Anglo-Saxon/Norman (with the occasional bit of viking thrown in for good measure) group based in Nottingham (monthly pub meets in the city centre), part of Regia Anglorum (so national shows) but active locally (at the event noted above for example). High authenticity (but in a nice way), relatively inexpensive period to get into if you haven't before.

Nice bunch, very welcoming to new members, can't reccomend them enough, still a member and I live in Canada!

Beware of dragons, for you are crunchy and good with ketchup.

You have a group based in the university itself - ask for Pete, or drop me a PM for a telephone number/email address to speak with him
