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.

When you can't go to the pub, and it's going to be a while before the regiment can socialise together in the flesh, what better idea than to 'virtually' go to the pub? Members and ex members enjoyed a get together last night to share a drink and a catch up on Zoom. Cheese & port made an appearance too, of course. Much fun and silliness was shared! We must do what we can in these times! 🍻🥂🍷

Newcastle's Foote

We are still crossing our fingers and hoping that the Corona Virus won't cause us to cancel too many events this year- currently our calendar is looking great with some potentially very exciting events, but we will, of course have to be guided by government advice and prioritise safety at all times for both our members and our wonderfully supportive public.

*23/24/25 May (late bank holiday) Basing, major event
*20/21 June Bolsover Castle, a small but wonderful living history event at this beautiful English Heritage property, owned and lived in by Cavendish himself)
*27/28 June Wakefield Armed Forces Day & Marston Moor Memorial March
*1/2 August Temple Newsam, Large Mini
*29/30/31 August (bank holiday) Naseby 375th anniversary & major event
*12/13 September, Bristol, major event

The Sealed Knot has today issued a statement which you can read by following the link.

We hope to bring more positive news soon, stay safe!
