Looking for a group.

Post by Miss Costello »

Seasoned other eras re-enactor (and other half) looking for a group to join (Not ACW)
Currently doing WW1 and WW2 (and will keep on with those eras) but looking to do more.
Wanting to be as accurate as possible, will travel etc!

Any ideas? we're based in Yorkshire.

The 19th foot Green Howards are getting a good reputation and are relatively small. Mainly based around Halifax and Sheffield.

Hi Miss Costello,

I'm in the 32nd Cornwall (don't expect you to want to travel that far!) but we're currently trying to get a group together which you might be interested in if you join the Napoleonic Association - fondly known as the Pemberley Detachment :D

This would be a group of ladies who met at events - and indeed outside events if they so chose - to recreate the lost arts of tea-drinking, authentic cake, period poetry, fringe-knotting, embroidery and other genteel pursuits for the edification of the public. Attendance at Balls *is* an option. There are some that OH and I have been to where it is a bit of an asset to go mob-handed as you feel likea bit of a wallflower else!

If that's the sort of thing you fancy drop me a message?

tea-drinking, authentic cake
Sounds great, I want in. :lol: :lol:

Much better than all that shouting and jumping through hedges.

Well, if you're serious :D there is a new board on the NA Forum called the Rose and Feather which is specifically intended for the, ah, gentler side of life.

Trying to arrange a meet at Rockingham (which I won't be going to, but plenty other people will) although it's early days yet....
