Satisfaction will be delivered in three weeks' time

We are counting down now to the first performance of our new show 'A Polite Exchange of Bullets - The Realities of the Gentlemans Duel'.

This project has been 2 years in the making and we plan to expand this into a range of Georgian and Regency talks and demonstrations including medicine and courtly romance as well as the central demonstration of the duel.

We will be performing this for the first time, in all it's glory and pomp at the Thoresby Park Historical Bazaar on 19th and 20th May.

Back for our third visit to Hack Green and rebooked for an extra visit!

With a change of date to accomodate the RAF Centenary we came to Hack Green two weeks after Easter for their regular Soviet Threat event.

We came with a slightly bigger display and focussed more on the propaganda associated with the psywar in Malaya, as well as lauching our new timed talk on the Malaya Emergwency.

To cap off the weekend, the bunker has found it so successful they're looking to repeat it later in the year, so we'll be back in September, and a visitor who saw us at Cosford brought us cake - happy times!.

You can check out Hack Green here.

One of our busiest weekends ever at RAF Cosford for the RAF100 Centenary Celebrations

Our first event of the season got off with a bang as over 14,000 visitors descended on RAF Cosford for the RAF100 Centenary celebrations.

We attended displaying our Malaya Emergency impression underneath one of the helicopters that first saw use in the Emergency and the subsequent Borneo Confrontation.

Of the many high points over the weekend we were surprised and honoured to have a veteran of the Malaya Emergency and a veteran of the Borneo Confrontation visit our stand and share their stories of jungle warfare and National Service.

The Royal Air Force Museum at Cosford is FREE ENTRY with a small charge for parking and has 4 hangars full of 100 years of history of flight and combat.

They have an excellent Cold War era display hangar which really goes into details of the flashpoints of the Cold War in ways many other museums overlook.

We're looking for any excuse to go back.

Regency becomes a reality, and our first 2019 booking already!

Our first visit of the year to The Original Reenactors Market was worth the trip through all the snow and apocalyptic landscaping.

Finally what started as a spark of an idea over some considerable Calvados at Scarborough reaches reality as we collected the kit for the Regency Gentlemens Duelling Show 'A Polite Exchange of Bullets'.

Want to see us perform this? You can see us at Thoresby Hall 19-20 May or Wimpole Hall 23-24 June, we have also taken a booking this weekend for July 2019 to perform this show. Dates to be confirmed. Watch this space.

2017 is over but 2018 is looking better than ever

The 2017 season has come to a close with our last weekend of the year at Wimpole Hall with Eventplan and the National Trust.

What a year it has been! It has seen our Malayan Emergency portrayal at Hack Green make the local press. We have done our first events for English Heritage at Scarborough and Carlisle Castle and our first independent event with the National Trust at Hughenden Manor.

We have pretty much covered the whole country this year taking in Cumbria, Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Buckinghamshire and Cambridgeshire... come on Kent and Devon... what are you waiting for?

Next year already sees 7 confirmed events in the calendar with returns to Wimpole Hall and Hughenden Manor for the 40s weekends, a return to Baston to display Malaya as well as several new venues and events including going back to Wimpole for the History Festival as well as Thoresby Hall and RAF Cosford.

We look forward to 2018 as much as we happily look back on 2017.
