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.

Fancy having a little update of what we’ve been getting up to, what’s coming up and some exclusive content, not published anywhere else, sent straight to your inbox? You can sign up here for our newsletter that comes out regularly throughout the year.

Thanks to Shakespeare's Ophelia referring to it in Hamlet in 1601, the celebration of Valentine's Day gained popularity in the 17th Century with the exchange of letters and small gifts between lovers. (Painting C18th by Bernado Bellotto) #valentinesday #keepitstuart #17thCentury
