Crusade: Nationwide 11th to 13th Century Society.

Postby ForTheMarshal » Mon Jan 16, 2012 10:35 pm

Greetings. We are Crusade.

We have worked with a variety of clients, large and small, to reproduce an experience of life in the 11th to 13th centuries.

We are a flexible group, and have turned our hand to everything from 8th century Vikings to the Vietnam war, however our primary focus is the Crusades and the Crusading era. We portray the people, places, and professions of the cultures present in the Mediterranean in that time period.

We have a presence in:

Leicester - email leicester@crusade-reenactment.co.uk for details
Birmingham - email birmingham@crusade-reenactment.co.uk for details
Northampton - email northampton@crusade-reenactment.co.uk for details
Nottingham - email nottingham@crusade-reenactment.co.uk for details
York - email york@crusade-reenactment.co.uk for details
Hull - email hull@crusade-reenactment.co.uk for details
Cambridge - email cambridge@crusade-reenactment.co.uk for details
London - email london@crusade-reenactment.co.uk for details
Coventry - email coventry@crusade-reenactment.co.uk for details
Bradford - email bradford@crusade-reenactment.co.uk for details
Bath - email bath@crusade-reenactment.co.uk for details
Sheffield - email sheffield@crusade-reenactment.co.uk for details
Manchester - email manchester@crusade-reenactment.co.uk for details
NB: All of the above emails are live, and have folks on the end of them doing the legwork on their groups.

and are currently working on expanding to other areas too (new projects keenly sought after!).
As well as our own shows, we also work alongside other established societies.

FAQs

- Can families join Crusade?

Yes, Crusade has many people from many ages and backgrounds, and all are equally welcome.

- Do I have to buy my own equipment before attending a show?

No. The society has a large supply of weapons, clothing and equipment that can be lent out to new or prospective members at their first shows. We do not expect you to spend money for equipment on a hobby you may not even like. However, if you do decide to take up the hobby members are encouraged to purchase their own equipment.

- Is it expensive?

It depends. A basic set of equipment can be purchased relatively cheaply, and this will last you through all the shows you attend. However, some members have chosen to buy large amounts of equipment; either way it is up to the individual to decide how much to spend on equipment. Much of your kit is made internally or by traders with whom we have close links. This means that equipment can be purchased much more cheaply.

- How old do I have to be to join?

Anyone can join Crusade upon paying the yearly membership.

However, under-18s need to have their parent/guardian join the society prior to an event. Then at any event an adult must be named by the parent/guardian to be responsible for the under-18.

- How old do I have to be to fight?

All combatants have to be 16 years of age or over and have permission of their parent or guardian.

- Do I have to fight?

No. Combat re-enactment represents only a part of what our society portrays and is not compulsory. Many of our members are involved in demonstrating crafts from our period and showing life in the age of the Crusades.

- Will I be expected to go to every event?

No. Our society knows that everyone has lives outside re-enactment, so it is up to the member which shows he or she attends.

- Where do I stay during an event?

Many of our members camp in the Living History encampment throughout the weekend. This means that you are at the heart of re-enactment throughout the show; however you are expected to maintain authenticity standards throughout the event’s opening hours.

At many shows there is also the option of plastic camping. This allows members to bring their modern tents and camp in a separate campsite. Members are not expected to maintain authenticity here, however at some shows there may not be an option to for plastic camping.

Members are also free to hire their own accommodation in hotels and B&B’s if they wish to do so.





Remaining places you can see us in 2012:

Sherwood Forest
29th and 30th September

Hastings
13th and 14th October

ILHF
26th to 28th October
We will be running a recruitment stand on the mezzanine - please come and say hello :D

We also intend to be at NLHF and TORM - details coming when we have them.





If you like what you see, please like our Facebook page HERE
If you have any queries, questions, or just want to say hello - please do use this thread, or PM me if you're shy :wink:

Erm, good question. I don't know. I *think* it's Crusade and affiliates/allies/whatever term you use for two societies very close to each other only, but will confirm and post back.

Not yet, sadly. Trying to get off the ground properly in Cambridge (well, St Neots) is closest we have so far.

I do say "yet", though :wink:

D'oh - forgot to post that the website is back up.
http://www.crusade-reenactment.co.uk

If anyone spots an error, please do let me know via PM so I can inform the admin.
We're still testing the emails after the new host reset them :roll: - it's all a bit over my head, but we should be functional again now.
If you sent a message and were not responded to, please PM me on here ASAP.

If anyone is hoping to speak to us in person at an event re: events, working together, joining up, forming a group within the society, or anything else really, this is the ugly @&%$ you need to hunt down (ie, me)
