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.

Norwich Historical Dance

Norwich, Norfolk

Norwich Historical Dance continues a great tradition of social dance in Norfolk. We dance for our own pleasure and for audiences to discover this less well known aspect of our cultural heritage. We aim to place the dances in their social and historical context, and we perform in costume, often with live music.

The Fighting French

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.
