Any groups near Middlesborough?

Hello All,

Come January I will be shipping off to Teesside University to do a masters degree.

Although Knights in Battle in Sheffield don't get ride of me that easily I was wondering if there were any groups nearer where I'll be living I can come say "hello" to? :)

Regards

Tom

lol I can't say I am surprised to find threads just like this one but I didn't know they exsisted or where they were. =D Like I say above it is entertaining to hear some of the things people come out with. One of our members has a great responce to "Is that a real fire?" which I'll wait ti...

Silly, strange and stupid questions from the public.

Hey Everyone, I have only been reenacting now for around 5/6 months but having not yet missed one of our shows it has been interesting to talk to a wide variety of the public and to try and answer some of the questions and statements presented. I thought I would start a thread in which we can share ...

So you want to buy a new drum...

Well I think my poor drum has given up the ghost. We did a refight of the battles of Northampton and Wakefield over the weekend. After tighening up the drum and readying myself to be drummer, standard bearer and water carrier all in one the flattened thump I got out of it raised not the Yorkist spir...

No alas poor drum.

Cheers for the link Eyemo. We have a show this weekend so I'll look into it properly next week.

As for the weather: Looking outside here in 'Sunny' Sheffield I only hope this is not a foretaste of what's to come in Preston. :?

It is slack. It still makes a sort of drum tipe noise when you pull the cords down and tighten it but it is not a happy noise. You have to hit it in just the right place which is not easy to do when there are a horde of Lancastrians coming your way!! lol

Reskinning a drum

Hello all, I am pretty new to reenacting and I was recently given my society's drum and set loose at our shows. The poor drum however has seen many more battles than I probably ever will and, I'm told by those more knowledgeable than I, needs a new skin. This was most apparent at Tewkesbury this yea...

Now I think about it yes I do see what you mean by That's a huge question and not one that can be answered briefly. The period we do is C15th so a few years out. What you have given me is a good start though. I shall do a lot more research to get the basics and From there spend a huge sum of money o...

Wow thank you very much Brother Ranulf that is superb! Assuming all goes well I can send you a picture of the finished gift if you're interested. p.s. I am thinking about taking up the role of a brother in my reenactment group. The idea for the character is to be a some what amoral vicar/priest(I'm ...

lol Don't worry Captain Middleton I won't tell them my name is Pike. =P Yes I think that is probably the case and definately quite a variation. It would make for a very messy reenactment if that was accurate! At the end of the fight nearly everyone would be laying on their back or running away, espe...

If anyone is interested it was a resounding victory for the Lancastrians. This might well have a little something to do with Clarence attacking Gloucester in the back just as he (Gloucester) had started to attack, a now slightly confused, John Boufort. At the end of the day Gloucester and Hastings w...

A bit of Latin help

Hello Everyone, I have a phrase I want to translate into Latin and not entirely trusting the online options I thought I'd ask here and see if anyone could help. The phrase I want in Latin is: Glory on this day to Master Piewold, Champion of the Howard Household, May he be victorious in all his fight...
