Reenactors Directory

Over the years we have received many requests from schools, media companies and historic venues for details of re-enactors, in order to help to bring alive the various period events that they wished to stage. In addition, many individuals have contacted us looking for similar information concerning societies and associations in which they can join, to share in the fun, interest and passion of a specific historic era.

In response to this demand, we have created a directory of UK-based living history societies and associations, complete with web links and contact details as appropriate. Each groups availability for public and school displays as well as film work is also indicated.

The Great War Society

Nationwide

We are a living-history society, not a battle re-enactment group, believing that it is simply neither possible – nor desirable – to attempt to portray combat in front of the public. Rather, our activities are focused upon authentic demonstrations of the many and varied skills which a soldier would have had to acquire to enable him to do his job “in the field”. Our members dress in period uniforms and equipment, learn the drill, and undertake the training and everyday activities of the time.
