Is that a real fire/baby/dog/sword?
Absolutely, so please be careful.
Can I go into your tent?
If it’s open, please do. However, if it is closed, it is a private space. Re-enactors encampments are their homes for the weekend, so please respect their privacy.
Can I eat your food?
Due to food safety guidelines, re-enactors can’t let you share their meals. But they will be happy to give you the recipe so you can try it at home.
Can I take a shortcut through your encampment?
The ropes that keep the tents upright can be a trip hazard, so please walk around the encampments, not through.
Feel free to chat to the re-enactors, they’re passionate about what they do and love to share! Please also be mindful of their possessions and space, they’ve worked very hard to create everything that you see.
