A fabulous event at Erpingham in Norfolk invoked memories of Agincourt, and we launched a series of Victorian Christmas Markets across the country, plus a Sudeley Castle Richard III experience, Witches & Wizards at Berkeley Castle, and the multiperiod East Anglian Living History Fayre in Suffolk.
Our events are, naturally, best suited to historic properties, both outside in the grounds or within the building, where we have the necessary costumes, uniforms, props and expertise to make perfect dioramas and settings to delight visitors.
We have successfully organised historical events in schools, churches and churchyards, ultra-modern museums, Cathedrals, castles, kitchens, galleries, libraries, football pitches and even replicated a 14th century pilgrimage to Walsingham from Norwich.
Many of our events are annual attractions, being repeated by clients as they see successful formats bring increased visitor numbers. See what we’re up to this year at our Events Diary Page
We also organise historical markets and fayres. Please contact us if you would like to attend, exhibit, demonstrate or trade.
