THE FOX HEAD COMPANYE
The Fox Head Companye is primarily a 14th Century re-enactment and living history group based in Oakham. Our aim is to recreate a mercenary company and retinue circa 1375 during the Hundred Years War.
With Regular training for those wanting to improve or learn martial skills and with access to an outdoor range set in ancient woodland throughout the year we aim to be an active and social group.
Events take place throughout the Spring, Summer and Autumn and training will take place during the winter months. We have a private Facebook group so members can stay in touch.
The group also has comprehensive public liability insurance.
What Do I need to do to Join?
Firstly you need a passion for history and an eye for authenticity. We want to accurately depict 14th Century life so zips and elastic are a no-no.
You should also enjoy learning new things, many re-enactors make their own clothes, furniture or accessories.
Ideally you will have some sort of income as re-enactment can be an expensive hobby.
Transport would be useful as you may also find yourself with quite a lot of equipment to ferry back and forth to events.
You would need to fill out our membership form and pay the membership fee (to cover insurance, admin, additional group costs and communal resources) and you will then be issued with your membership card.
Annual Membership Fees
Individual (18+) £20
