Hi all.
I`m thinking to join or may be start a new 14/ early 15 century group near Wellingborough/Northampton f. Personally I`m re-enacting period between 1385-1411 and if there is any one interested in some training and good fun contact me :D . I have a few contacts with groups in Poland so there will be chances to go abroad for some re-enacting.Also i`m a member of The Paladins of Chivalry, but looking to do something more locally because of the distance.

I look forward to hear anything from You guys.

Peter

The Bifrost Guard http://www.bifrostguard.co.uk/ are an active Viking (and sometimes a bit later) reenactment group based in Wellingborough. We usually practise every other saturday at Wellingborough museum.

Hi Sassyfrass.
I`t is a shame but i`m reenacting 14th century and it is way to late for your group :(. But i will pop in one day to see what you doing, may be to do some training.

Hi Iron Dwarf sorry but I could not make this weekend to meet you guys.

I still would like to meet up with you on the other occasion. Unfortunately I have not found any local group which would do period 1360-1415. So I`m looking for people who want to start something with me in this area. I em reenacting Knight of the Teutonic Order (1380-1415) from this period. If any one is interested please contact me.

Hi there!

As you may guess I'm a complete newbie to 're-enactment groups but I was recently at tattershall castle and met a group there and thought this is me! I'm very interested in doing some training and hopefully becoming part of a group. I am from rushden so was wondering if this group got off the ground, or if anybody would know of a local group who may be willing to give me a chance? I am very enthusiastic and keen to learn.

Mss do a meet up at the Naseby Battlefield for a skirmish - just for re-enactors - no public - if you go be careful of the Wrngwyrm lot - they'll have yer car up on blocks and the wheels on ebay in under an hour ! :lol: - only kidding - the Wyrms are a great bunch and worth taking the trip over Bedford way to check them out ! :thumbup:
