Looking for a late 18th Century Non-Military Society

Post by Tamsin »

Does any one know of any societies for between about 1750 and 1815 with a non-military bias? I'm based in Oxfordshire but willing to travel.

Not sure if The Regency Club is still going? Anyone know?

Lots of regency dance groups around including http://www.regencyassembly.co.uk/

There are a few groups about that hold regency house parties and the like but tend to be private and by invitation.

There's also the Lexington minutemen, who are an American revwar civilian Miltia (1775-1776). We all portray civilians i.e. my role is as tailor, and do skirmishes. All are welcome and one aspect that we are developing is the living history side. The group is based all around the country with myself in Cheltenham, also in Leicester, derby, Devon, south wales to name but a few places. Our website is lexingtonminutemen.co.uk
We also have a training event at AVoncroft Open air museum this weekend, if you want to see what we do
