School Visits

One of the things that we enjoy most is talking to people about our hobby, and you can’t find a more receptive audience than school children!


A number of members, dressed in full 17th-century clothing and fully equipped for a civilian or military role (depending upon your requirements) can visit the school and give a brief presentation to those classes for whom the visit was organised, or possibly to the whole school (depending on size). After the talk pupils may handle replica 17th-century items including weapons and the presenter will answer any questions they have. This phase can last some time as the pupils are usually full of queries and comments on what they’ve seen.
