With the Medieval Free Company you can feel the weight of a real sword, hear the whip of the bowstrings as the arrows fly, mark the dexteritity it takes to weave baskets, try your hand at making butter from scratch, test your cunning with the games master and feel the heat from the cook's open fire. We guarantee an immersive, engaging and truly Medieval experience.

 

We pride ourselves on our passion for this period of history and the skills and aspects of medieval life that we display. As such we welcome as many questions as you can ask and only hope that you are inspired to learn more about life during the Wars of theRoses as a result of meeting the Medieval Free Company.

The 304th Panzer grenadier

 

The 304th Panzergrenadier Living History Group was formed in 2013 and became part of the oldest WW2 re-enactment society in the country, the WW2 Living History Association. From its start our group have striven for a strong command structure and true authenticity in everything that we do and after only a few years the group has gained a reputation for authenticity and a true representation of the German Panzer Grenadier. We’re keen to find and recruit people from around the country who have the same level of commitment to authenticity and to the preservation of WW2 history.
