Re: Insurance

I missed this post originally but can also recommend Gary - we moved to him about 10yrs ago and have always found him competitive and able to provide suitable policies not just for our re-enactment events (and group shows) but other non re-enactment events

Annie is right about support from the Fondation du Patrimoine, although it is complicated, usually 50% tax relief, but with grants being available if the o...

Re: Advice needed: H&S and Displaying wool

Or the Scottish local authority who, before issuing a licence for a medieval event in May, wanted to know if all re-enactors' clothes were fireproof and met modern standards, and wanted certificates of compliance for living history tents together with plans showing where their 'burst out' doors were.

Not much you can do about it though. Small claims if you can afford the extra fee to register it. At least then you'll have an official record of a claim.
