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.

One of the bittersweet parts of making so many friends in this hobby is remembering those people fondly when they pass. Ged Cahill was one of the longest serving members of the regiment, first joining Savilles (who got folded into Newcastles) in the early 80s. A charismatic, witty and kind man, Ged is fondly remembered by those who had the pleasure to know him. A Civil Servant by career, he spent his whole working life helping the underprivileged of Sheffield, always ensuring to treat everyone with respect and dignity. With a keen interest in history, re-enactment allowed Ged to continue this love and he was a member of our regiment until he passed away in January. Today the regiment have gathered to celebrate his life.Gerard Cahill, 21st June 1956 - 3rd January 2023. ... See MoreSee Less
