Scottish/North of England Medieval re-enactments 2008 thread

Post by zauberdachs »

For the last two years I've been doing "Bannockburn" threads and was thinking of doing a 2008 one. Well, after thinking about it I decided that I'd leave that up to someone else this year. Instead I was thinking it'd be nice to look at the big picture and not focus on the one event.

Hence welcome to "Scottish/North of England Medieval re-enactments 2008 thread"

So, what's confirmed and who's doing what this year?

I would have thought this might be better in the events section, which is for events, rather than having all sorts of other threads on events everywhere. Anyone go an opinion?

A thread about events in the events section?

Would be best if it were posted in the forums help and advice forum. Thats where everything else is posted before its moved.
Slowly realizing just how far is still to go.

nah, I thought about that but then I think events is for official events announcements. This isn't about announcing events but less formal and more personal discussion of which events groups are going to specific to the 1100-1500 period.

Now stop cuba-ing my thread ;)

Tatton (I know that that's south midlands and not the north but who cares ? :)) and Lanark for me most likely, the occasional Tudor gig in the Borders and that's about it for the moment.

That, sunshine, is fighting talk.


And, of course, Bodelwyddan?

It only counts as "north" cos it can be reached by sundown from Edinburgh even if you leave after work so don't have to take the day off.

Boddy-woddy aint on the cards for me- no paid holidays this year plus two jobs and school so having to be careful with events.

Ellesmere Port likely the next event after Tatton but not in this timeframe.

There’s a country in Europe where they treat their ex soldiers with pride no waits for medical treatment after injuries received during service, no amensia from the government. Cant for the life of me recall where it is but I know exactly where it is not.

Eh? The last we heard was that a date would be decided by mid-September 2007, but there's nothing on the NTS events list, and since the new Bannockburn visitor centre - sorry, the new Culloden visitor centre - has been completed, I was going with the theory that Bannockburn is off the menu. Has anyone heard otherwise?

Yeah, pretty much why I was thinking I wasn't going to start a new thread on it.

We going to see you at any events this year?

Last year I e-mailed Alison, and she had heard nothing, and someone gave me the e-mails of a couple of NTS people higher up the foodchain, but they havn't replied, so I think we can safely say that it is not on this year, or if it is, it will involve 3 men and a dog, wearing blankets.

Auch I'm sure there are several groups they can get at short notice. All with names prefixed with the word "clan" ;)

Or, as is their usual wont, we won't hear anything until about 3 weeks beforehand.

Bodelwyddan does not clash with Kelmarsh, which has very obligingly moved to July (and I didn't even have to ask them!) :lol:

A lot in August (Marymass in Inverness and Lanark, as well as Caerlaverock), working on a couple of other leads for other events in June/July and the St Andrew's thingummy. As well as Harlaw in September.
