The Living History Guide

Welcome to this section of the Historic UK website, dedicated to Living History – living history events, battle reenactments and the people who make it happen, the reenactors and traders.

Experience history first hand and attend one of the many Living History reenactment events taking place this year throughout the UK.

In response to demand from schools, media companies and historic venues, we have created a directory of UK-based living history societies and associations, complete with web links and contact details.

In our Traders Market we provide details of traders and service providers who help to bring history to life through the goods and services that they provide. For example in our Armoury you can even find craftsmen creating hand forged arrowheads through to suppliers of 19th century siege cannon.

So bookmark this page now, as throughout the year we will be publicising upcoming events and adding to our photo albums.
