Who are we?
We are a small re-enactment group who pride ourselves in offering an accurate, immersive experience of everyday life at the height of the Hundred Years War. We specialise in living history and provide a number of high-quality displays including weapons and armour, archery, cookery and textile crafts. Whatever your event, the Garrison will bring the 14th Century to life!
Who are our members?
Our members draw from a wide range of backgrounds and specialisms, ensuring that there will always be someone on hand to answer a question, no matter the topic. Uniquely, we have a number of members with graduate and post-graduate qualifications in archaeology, providing a solid research basis to our group.
