Who's out there?

Postby Grania » Thu Dec 29, 2011 2:01 pm

Hi all

I've posted here before I think, so apologies for doing so again!

I'm fairly new to the re-enacting world, having been taking part in domestic civilian 1740s living history for about 18 months or so, but I'm looking to expand my range a bit and get some more experience and knowledge.

I'm female, in my early 20s and not all that mobile, so I'd prefer to stick to civilian living history, but period-wise I'm fairly flexible - for example, does anyone know of any groups covering 1780s - Regency, or late 19th to early/mid 20th century?

Thanks
G

Hi Grania!
www.4and20blackbirds.co.uk specialise in historic cooking from Medieval through to Edwardian so it may be a bit more tightly focussed than what you're after but all details are on the website and Facebook too.
Always keen to get new members !!

Best of luck in your search

:) Thanks, I will take a good look at the website, although I'm probably not much help to you in the food line for various reasons - will enjoy reading though :)

Hi Grania,

I suggest that you contact the Napoleonic Association. They do 1790 - 1830's and have people and groups all over the place. Their AGM and ball is at the end of January in Bedford this year. I went a couple of years ago and it is pretty splendid. Whilst they do lots of battles there are also plenty of ladies too who do living history.

Wotcha Girly =o) Don't be afraid of asking the others in MM, most of us do other periods too from Early Medieval to WWII in some cases.
