Medieval Combat Society

The Encampment


When the Medieval Combat Society set up at a show we bring with us an entire slice of medieval life featuring tents, tradesmen's stalls, cooking facilities and all the furniture and fittings of a royal entourage encamped for a tournament.

During the day the public are able to explore the encampment and receive a "show and tell" experience of life in the 14th Century with the opportunity to handle weapons and armour, medieval crafts, encampment cooking, children playing with period toys and much more.

In the words of the Mayor of Crecy "We expected you to bring a few tents, but this is formidable! You have bought an entire village!"
