Welcome to the Medieval Re-enactment Society, also known as the Realm of Perfidious Albion! We recreate all aspects of life in Britain from 600 till 1600AD. Our regular meetings cover things such as medieval costume making, cooking with authentic recipes and ingredients, calligraphy and illuminated letters as well as learning medieval combat skills from translated period textbooks. Our regular meetings are:
27th Jan to 30th March, 27th April to 18th May
Mondays, 7pm-9pm, room 12.18, David Hume Tower, George Square
This is our general purpose meeting, in which we have lectures and workshops on a wide variety of topics, given by our members and guest speakers. We also hold our AGM and other similar meetings at this time. Our Facebook page will usually indicate ahead of time what we will be covering that week.
Medieval Combat Practice
Sundays, 2pm-4pm, Bruntsfield links
This is were we learn medieval combat techniques with all sorts of period weapons. Please note that in order to pay for the upkeep and replacement of equipment people wishing to attend this meeting will be required to pay an extra £5 per term on top of the existing membership fee. Contact AJ at firstname.lastname@example.org for details or enquiries.
Sundays, exact time and place varies
This is where those interested in performing at feasts and other PA events research and practise medieval songs and dances. Contact Nicky at email@example.com for details or enquires.
As well as regular meetings, we hold two feasts a year where we cook 8 courses worth of medieval food with entertainment provided between each course, in the form of music, dancing or story telling. In the middle of each feast we also hold the society court where we attend to any matters that the society needs to address.
