I had nothing to do with the show except for helping to put up a trade tent and take pic's, the mix of kit is as much a mistory to me as you, but it was a grat fun show.

fair enough Ferret, but if anyone can provide an answer that'd be great.

What with the mix of periods, dubious historical/fantasy references and side post/wall tents I must admit i thought at first it was an SCA event :twisted:

I'm kind of hoping their attitude is relaxed rather than authentic too! :shock:

As a participent to the battle and an x-employee i would say that what makes cossy so popular is that it isnt 100% orfentic and the shows are exactly that,shows.Not historical recreations of actual battles but a way to entertain the public,which we did and have done many times before.Great fun was had by all MOPs n re-enactors alike so,it may not work on an aufentic basis but then again as i say it's to entertain,and Mr Ball,guessing you have only 3 previous posts would i be right in suspecting a lil innocent trollery here ? :D .
Each to their own IMHO if you want aufentic there are plenty of aufentic out there and if you dont and you want to just have a play and a good weekend doing other less strict stuff there are places like Templecombe and Tintagel,so lets not start with "we're better than you cos......" its crap like that that makes me enjoy Tintagel etc waaaaaaay more than i enjoy some of the more "serious historical interpretations".My kit is aufentic right down to all rivetted maille n hand stitched etc but i dont denigrate others for their lack of comitment ,Plenty of people leave cossy entertained which is how to get em interested in history in the first place,then when they are interested and inquirng about groups then you can work on em to set em straight.
Just my opinion ,and i arent sayiong everyone should not take the p*ss out of anyone ,hell that would be the singularly hipocritical thing i would ever say in my life :D

:D I think the main (unofficial though it may be) stipulation at Cossy is that everyone has a laugh. It`s a great chance for friends from loads of groups, of differing periods, to get together and have a bash and let the ale flow. This is why we keep coming back year after year,it really is one of the most fun weekends on my calendar. I`m sure if authenticity was a major issue, it would have been considered at the organisation level,and would be policed more strictly.

After saying that, it does look like a burst rugby ball on Al`s head lmao :wink:

No denegration Mr C (BTW some kit looks pretty good as it happens), merely questioning what the purpose of the show was?

If it was just to have fun, then why let the public in?

If it was just to entertain the public, with no sense of history, then why bother dressing in a vague history stlye at all?

Surely given the nature of the site and it's time frame, some effort should go towards 'keeping in period'?

As to my no. of posts; we've all got to start posting somewhere haven't we :)

Never made it to the battle at Cossy myself, but I have no problem with events like it and Tintagel. They happen to have some of the best fighting to be had.

Equally you could ask why not let the public in? Why should we hide the fun we're having?

You can tell it isn't SCA on account of all the steel things :twisted: ...[/i]

Perhaps Mr Ball could get in touch with the organisers and ask them - then he would have the exact answer.

Suffice it to say that both mops and reenactors ( and traders )have a really good time - so evryone who attends is happy.
