Azincourt 2015

Post by RobertofGwent »

Anyone planning on attending Azincourt 2015? A must for longbows, surely? The rules are quite strict, though, re. 'authentic' kit. Do you think they'll get 1,00 archers there in order to recreate the arrow storm and enter the Guiness Book of Records? The beta web page is here: http://www.mysite1952.co.uk/azincourt2015/

No, not on Eurotunnel. Eurostar has restrictions on hand luggage. We have taken swords, axes, maces, longbows, crossbows, arrows and bolts and other weaponry across on Euro tunnel and the ferries without a problem for years, we declare them and leave them on the vehicle.

I'd love to come to Agincourt on 2015, as my Ancestor Sir Thomas Babington was there.. Its amazing that he survived the battle and went on to live to 1464..Must have been all that shell fish that they ate :D I also found out in another family line threw marriage, I am related to Thomas Strickland who carried the English Flag in the Battle with his Bowmen. They were called the Kendal bowmen.. Thomas Stricklands family can be traced to King Aethelred the unready..also King Alfred the great with his cakes..lol :thumbup: Long live England Boys..

Coming late to this particular party, sorry.

We're thinking very seriously about a trip to Azincourt next year for the event - can anyone tell me whether one needs to be a member of an invited group or will peripatetic reenactors be welcome?

Hi ETFox

Usually it is groups that apply rather than individuals, but for an authoritative answer ask here http://www.azincourt2015.info/ or here https://www.facebook.com/groups/azincou ... ce.events/

Now, regarding the 'strict' rules I only found guidelines, but there is no information regarding the approval system. Or is there?
How can you prepare to be admitted for certain?

I need to check this for a reenactment group from Poland http://www.draby.pl, they'll be going a long way so they'd rather be certain they would be allowed to participate.
