Bringing the past to life

Historical reenactments whisk us away to a different time and put us in the shoes of our forebears.
When we witness living history displays the actors help us to imagine customs, rituals and everyday living that may seem far removed from the hustle and bustle of the present day.
With a little help from period costumes, music, props and mannerisms we are transported back in time and our eyes are opened to how life looked back then.
From grand banquets and intense jousting competitions to tending the land and livestock that made them possible – historical reenactments are a vivid and evocative way to immerse ourselves in the past and learn a little along the way.
