Re-Enactors 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.
