Reenactment groups in carmarthen/ceredigion

Hi folks

I used to be part of a templar reenactment group and have taken a big hiatus focusing on other sports which due to a back problem I can no longer do.

As such I've been thinking about getting back into reenacting but apart from the society at the university, Normanis, there's nothing about this way anymore I can find.

Does anyone know of anything around? I'd be up for anything viking to 16th to get back into it.

Failing that I've seen a few posts of people asking as well would anyone be up for starting a Welsh rebels group circa1200 - 1300, it's an easy one to do since the kit is basic and the variety of weapons to use plentiful and cheap to start. I'd happily repurchase any gear needed and I have a very large outside fenced garden for some weather dependant practice for up to about 6 (and I know a few chapels and halls to rent cheap if it grows)

Thanks
Darrell

Hi Darrell - did you find anything? I'm in NPT/Bridgend and mulling over a one man band doing Welsh 12th/13th century as little to join around here

Sorry for the very delayed reply. Covid put a spanner in anything coming from this.

There is a bunch of stuff nearish to you I believe, I found a viking era Welsh settlers group, and a few groups that do regular things at Caerphilly.

There's also a big event every tear at Caldicot, you'd definitely be able to find a group to join there so if it runs this year that should be a good one for you to attend to find folks.
