Welcome to Newcastle’s! We’re a regiment of the Sealed Knot Society, the largest re-enactment society in Europe. We take part in events up and down the country every year, depicting life in the 17th Century and putting on re-enactment battles of the English Civil  Wars which took place across the British Isles from 1642 to 1651.

We thought the best way to convey what we get up to and what we’re all about was to show you:

You can find out all about the history of the original and the modern day regiment, what we get up to as a re-enactment regiment and what we’ve got coming up, by exploring our site.

If you already know you want to come along, head to the Joining Us page to get the ball rolling.

We also update our Blog regularly with all sorts of interest posts ranging from Q&As with member of the regiment, round ups of the events we’ve been at and wider historical interest posts about life in the 17th Century.

We've all been having a great time guessing who he's been making this week and trying to spot ourselves! Thanks Ben ... See MoreSee Less

Newcastle's Foote

What a weekend that was! Newcastle's regiment turned out in force at Scampston Hall with over 100 of us there to mark the stepping down of our Commanding Officer Dave and his 2ic Gary. We welcome Simon as our new CO, ably supported by Katrina for our next chapter. The weekend involved multiple parties and celebrations and we were even awarded the Brigade Shield for Most Improved Regiment for the SECOND year running 💪 As we nurse the hangovers and recover from the excess heat, we remain very proud to be part of the flock 🐑 ...
