The Midlands History Festival

My friend Laurie Wignall, who is the proprietor of the infamous Trollsbottom Bar Beer Tents complete with buxom wenches, and I are staging a multi-period history festival at Stratford Armouries a couple of miles to the North of Stratford Upon Avon over the weekend of August 7th & 8th.

We currently have 47 different re-enactment groups and societies lined up, from Spartans to WWII Italians. (I'm looking forward to winding them up with all the old jokes!!!) Plus a sizeable market, "historic" as well as modern and a craft marquee.

The Guild of Wenches are planning to hold their AGM at the event, so there'll be more cleavage on display than enough. Take a look at some of the pictures on the www.trollsbottom.com website....

So many cannons and muskets we are having to ship in black powder in bulk, it's going to get VERY noisy.

More details on http://www.mid-fest.co.uk

Best wishes

Good grief !!!!!!!!!!     They'd frighten the living day lights out of me.    
We'll be having our own garden party on the 8th of August so we wont be able to go but you might try and persuade the 'buxom wenches' to jump camp.

Yeah, they are definitely well endowed.

I was handing out leaflets at a little medieval show at "Shakespeare's Church" in Stratford Upon Avon a few weeks ago and was using different strategies for children and young adult males.

"Don't let your parents take you to this show if they are scared of loud noises and people hitting each other with swords!"

"You wouldn't believe the cleavage that will be on display at this event!"

Hi Pilsbury,

I think Martin is supposed to be coming, he's listed on the website. I'll check with Laurie, but as far as I am personally concerned, the mushroom munchies should be there! And in such a big event why should there not be some competition or even two floggers of Jerky to "meat demand" (sic)  

After all, there's more than one maker of costumes, sword floggers etc.

Let me know if you'd like a table in our red tent, save you hiring one.

Best wishes

I am going to be here this weekend after a late change of plans so please come along and visit if you are able to.
Looking forward to a great weekend and meeting lots of friends again.
