Cardiff Castle Garrison enjoyed a lovely show at Chepstow Castle. We had a great turnout of newer members who we introduced to how to take part in a re-enactment show, and many of our older members also joined us for a wonderful weekend.
Garrison set up a living history camp in the grounds of Chepstow Castle and gave fourteenth-century cooking, crafting, and weapons and armour displays, along with a more interactive archery display and a talk on medieval clothing.
We all had a wonderful time, and thanks so much to all members of the group who took part, as well as the public who came to see us.
Cardiff Castle Garrison are pleased to be doing an introduction to re-enactment show at Chepstow Castle next weekend (3rd and 4th October). We will be showcasing a living history camp with crafts, blacksmith, weaponry, armour, archery and clothing displays. This show is designed for some of our newer members to get acquainted with re-enactment and learn how our equipment and displays are run and members of the public will see more detailed medieval talks and displays, including how to put up a medieval tent. If you’re free next weekend head along to Chepstow Castle between 10.00 a.m. and 4.00 p.m; we’d love to see you!
