Additional Info

We are The Knights of Skirbeck, a medieval re enactment society offering a unique brand of Living History and Entertainment.  Our society is a non profit organisation that exists to reconstruct and re-enact late medieval life, chiefly during the reign of Henry IV, V & VI (1399-1461)  We do this through story telling and first person living history – the language is modern, but the attitudes and opinions are planted firmly in the middle ages!  Our displays and demonstrations include; food/cookery, flour making, clothes, games, crafts, a wise woman & her remedies, medieval surgeons tools, armour, weapons and combat.  Visitors to our encampment of authentically styled & set out tents, are encouraged to try on armour, handle the weapons and try out medieval games. We do not rope off our encampment, where safe to do so, all areas are accessible to visitors – including inside the display tents.  As we don’t have access to, or own premises, during the off season we meet up to train fortnightly at various locations. Non members are always welcome to join us at these training sessions.
