Training Schedules & Venues

Sundays

Sunday Afternoons are our main Training Sessions.

From 10:00AM till around 1:00PM we don our armour, take up our weapons and practice historical combat techniques in a most respectful and safe environment. For the non combatants we have a variety of crafts including sewing (garments), beading, cooking and the most noble art of archery.

There is always something to do, and something to keep everyone interested in a warm and friendly environment of like minded people. Children are most welcome as we are a family friendly group.

From swords and shields, spears and axes, archery and javelin throwing; we can train you in a great variety of martial disciplines, all of which are based on historical evidence on how they were used, and why.

Midweek Training (Tuesday Evenings)

Tuesday Evenings between 4:00pm and 7:30pm, offer a more relaxed and less aggressive (non-garbed) session which pay heed to the more docile persuits of re-enactment.

Often this is the time when we focus on costuming and crafting and engage in casual historical research and discussions.

Alternatively you can come along and practice your combat as there is always someone who is eager for a fight!
