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.

Tempus Fugitives focus on the study of the 16th century North Italian martial systems which were so popular in London during the Elizabethan period. Based out of Southwark, we practice mostly sword and companion weapons such as the dagger, the smaller targa shield or larger rotella shield.

The Fighting French

London

A small group of re-enactors representing the French army in various conflicts. Our most famous portrayal being to accurately pay homage to the men of the illusive 1er Batallion de Choc. Whilst we take accuracy very seriously, we also have fun while re-enacting.
