I am a historical reenactor who has spent the last 15 years working in the education sector. I am a member of the Taunton Garrison Historical Reenactment Group and their Official Historian. The Historical Reenactment Society can cater for all year groups from KS1 to KS4. We can custom design sessions and/or days around school timetables and a school's curriculum.

Be it: an archer at Agincourt or Bosworth Field, a Tudor barber-surgeon, a musketeer from the English Civil War, a rebel or redcoat from the Monmouth Rebellion or a WWI Tommy from the horrors of the Somme - we can provide your pupils with an inspiring and memory-making day!

Tailor made days - full reenactment clothing and equipment - interactive activities - lesson plans available - follow up work available - parent & teacher workshops - whole school history day planning and much more. All our sessions are fully insured and staff DBS checked.
