We are a living history focused group, who love to engage with the public and make the space feel ‘lived in’ – whether that’s a field or a castle.
We can tailor our shows to correspond with specific dates and events relevant to the site in question e.g. Magna Carta and raising the ransom for Richard.
*Please note that activities may vary for each event depending upon the availability of the groups members who have the relevant skills and equipment.
