Looking for a Roman re-enactment group around Nottingham

Postby Mars Ultor » Wed Aug 08, 2007 11:32 pm

I have been a re-enactor for about a year now and have experience for both medieval and roman shows, as well as some pirate which was more for fun than any historical accuracy. However I am hopefully going to uni in Nottingham next year and would like to carry on re-enacting while I am there.

The Romano-British period is my preference but anything medieval or similar would also be good!

Can anyone help me out with this?

Are you intending to stay in the Nottingham area all the time or will you be going back home during the summer? if so that may be a better indication of where a group to fit may be as the majority of the season will probably occur when you are not at University.

Just a thought before names are bandied about. :)

It is quite likely that I would be going home during the summer, although I would stay around for the events if I could. The Group would be more to keep me in practise whilst I was at uni and give me the chance to get involved in events during the term time!

Conquest have several members in Nottingham itself with a few more not too far away, Regia have a Norman group based in Notts and a Viking group(s) in Derby. Otherwise you have the Dogs of War and Team Falchion - I'm not aware of any Roman types lurking in the vicinity though sorry.

University of Nottingham, or Nottingham trent? - the University of Nottingham has a living history society (with a strong medieval bias) which participates in events - go to the Freshers Fair.

It's the University of Nottingham, I didn't realise they had a living history group though!

I've never been able to find anything about them by looking through the students union socs site, but if you go to see them and what they do doesn't float your boat then my other half works in Hallward library and I'm a part-time student at the Uni too should you consider joining the darkside otherwise known as the nasty Normans :D

Couple of miles down the road in leicester, there's us (Vikings of Middle England), Draum Broedr (Vikings), Wulfingas (Romans and saxons), Stanley's (I think train on Mondays somewhere in leicestershire - C15th).

Thanks for these suggestions, I will have a look at all of them in due course.

Could anyone tell me where the Vicus group is based though?

mail us, off the website (although I think you did)

A load of us were up on a "group holiday" on Hadrians wall but we're now back .. !!!

We do training weekends at Ashby AND we're thinking about training days on sundays in a similar location (top of M42) throughout the winter. those would be very close to you.
