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.

Newcastle's Foote

We said earlier this week that we were busy getting ready for Scampston Hall and we weren't kidding! Pictured are just some of the bags of kit ready for our new (and nearly new) members to borrow this weekend! Our Spares Lady, Linda has been working really hard behind the scenes to make this possible and the regimental wardrobe is almost empty! We are really excited to be welcoming so many people to the ranks and sharing our hobby, just get in touch if you'd like to come along and have a go next time, we'd love to welcome you too! ...
