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.

For those of you who are regular followers of this page, you'll know that this year we've been commemorating the 375th anniversary of the battle of Marston Moor.

There is still time to get involved too, so let us know if you'd like to take part; £10 for individuals and £15 for a family can see you dressed up and deep in the action in less than two weeks time; we are always keen to welcome new people to the ranks- could our next recruit be you? ...

Newcastle's Foote

Last weekend our very enthusiastic musketeers took part in a pre-battle display recreating the musket action to re-take Cheriton Wood.

Musketeers from many regiments blocked in together to form two grand divisions in an attempt to better showcase how the assault 375 years ago would have been. Here is a great video taken by one of our members of some firing- it was really spectacular to watch and I'm assured, even better to be a part of!

In the early hours of 29th March 1644 in response to a Parliamentarian advance during the night, Lord Hopton despatched 1,000 musketeers to re-take Cheriton Wood as it posed an immediate threat to the left flank of the army. After a hard-fought action the Parliamentarian musketeers were driven back to their main battle line.
