This year, May was a busy month for events. We ended up having three events on three consecutive weekends.
The first one was a Mother's Day Tea, with a theme of "Homefront". A lovely, low key event that sort of eased us into the season.
Here is a list of all the events that we have scheduled for this year. There will be more info for each event in the Events Calendar. The list will be updated as we have more info...

In previous years, the big June event out at Fort Rodd Hill was a Timeline type event, with several other re-enactment groups participating and many eras represented all the way to medieval and roman. This year, the theme was set as Women on the Homefront. As this would be predominantly representing the 1940s, we decided to combine it with our annual D-Day commemoration for a bigger two-day WW2 themed event.
Just a quick post to list the upcoming events for 2017. There will be more information for each event in the Events Calendar.
