Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all!
2017 is shaping up nicely with a number of superb events on the books already. We are looking forward to returning to Arundel for more shows this year: the castle and resident group, Raven Tor, host fantastic weekends for re-enactors and members of the public alike.
More immediately our first practice session is on January 8th in Broughton Gifford village hall, near Chippenham. Please contact us if you want to come along. New, old and prospective members are most welcome.
Hope to see you there.
2016 has proven to be a fantastic success with several new members joining the group and invites received (and attended) for yet more interesting shows. We are coming towards the end of the 2016 season now but do not forget about our monthly meet-up sessions. We train with longsword (and other weapons), practice medieval crafts and play board games including Alea Evangelii. Our meet-ups are held near Chippenham one Sunday of each month in a village hall with tea, coffee and biscuits available.
If you are an existing member or thinking of joining please contact us for more information.
Every two months Wessex Medieval Alliance produces a newsletter for members. The latest issue is distributed to our members and previous issues are are available to all online.
This coming May bank holiday weekend WMA will be at The Siege of Arundel Castle. Arundel is an incredible place with the castle representing nearly 1000 years of evolution in fortified defences. We will have a large authentic living history display present and will be camping in medieval tents as well each night.
Our medieval chef extraordinaire of the Cheney Household will be cooking on a medieval range where you can see and smell the delights of medieval cookery.
Watch as our members take to the field in support of Raven Tor, clashing in fierce hand to hand combat, while our archers let loose across the battlefield.
It looks set to be a fantastic bank holiday weekend!
