Straw Hat Needed.

Need a straw hat suitable for a 15th century man. Does not need to be 100% perfect just ok to pass the 6 foot rule.

The only catch is that I need it for Friday the 24th August.

We will be going to our first Templecombe and want to know what to expect on and off the field.
The wife wants to know if there are showers and we want to know if there is a market.
What is the atmosphere of the show like and is the battle relatively safe or Tewksbury madness?

Tablet weave. 15th Century ?

We had a brief foray in to the 9th century and acquired some very nice tablet weave from Ali.
We have decided to concentrate on 15th century but want to know if we can use the tablet weave on 15th century kit.
