I am pretty sure that there is a re-enactment group at Lampeter University, but I cannot remember their name. I know that some of their members are members of this forum so you should get a response.

Good luck at Uni.

I'm at Lampeter and yes there is a reenactor group there however they focus on C11th to C12th, with out slatting too much they leave alot to be desired, if your an experience re enactor I would contemplate carefully before joining them, There safety standards are in my eyes very laxed and whilst I no little about the fighting style of this period they do seem to just be a bunch of students that are running around waving swords. However the group is very big and the people do have alot of fun doing it so if you looking at just keeping yourself busy during your time then maybe its worth considering.
