We are a worldwide group of History Enthusiasts that research our own particular interests and historical eras, the crafts and combat and many other aspects of how people lived pre-1600CE. We also enjoy showing off what we do.
We have participated in Fairs, Parades and Festivals, dressed up and demonstrating our skills.
We are a teaching and display group, but are not actors. We are happy to set up our tables full of historically researched projects our members have made, dressed in historical garb that we have made ourselves and talk to everyone, demonstrate different methods of combat, both armoured and Steel Weapons, as well as dancing from back then. We also use these opportunities to welcome anyone who might be interested in participating in our hobby.
We can Demonstrate different styles of Combat, and we are happy to interact with the public afterwards and allow them to touch the equipment.
We can show and give in-depths explanations of crafts and skills, including letting the public try out some crafts for themselves.
We can add colour and interest to any event with a historical theme. We are friendly, approachable and happy to talk to people.
We can also provide actual classes on many different subjects, such as: Costuming, Calligraphy & Illumination, Needle-binding, metal casting, Medieval Chess, Glass-bead making, Leather working and Wood-working among many many others, as they were done in the Middle Ages.
Our type of participation and what we can offer depends on who of our members is available at any given time, which is why we are not professional entertainers and do not have an established "show". We work with organisations to find a fun deliverable format and our fee for this goes towards our organisation, not the members, to help fund our activities.
Our charges start from a flat rate of €300 for a Half Day.
We have worked with Athlone Castle for quite a few years now. We have also taken part in the St. Nicholas's Cathedral Annual summer Medieval Fair since it's inception and have worked with Claregalway Castle, Portumna Castle, Roscrea Castle and Loughrea Walled Towns Medieval Fair among many others.
We have our own insurance coverage.
