Meet the Reenactor Groups 2016
The membership of Conroi is made of like minded individuals who have an interest in doing Living History/Re-enactment from different time periods.
Any time, Any place, Any Class
Conroi is a multi-time period Living History/Re-enactment Group without restriction on class, location or time. This is to allow all areas of individual interests to be permitted and encouraged. It is our goal for each event to have a focused look and feel. We strive for a high level of gear which is supported by appropriate documentation and high levels of discussion within our group. Our members are like minded individuals, who are always improving on their knowledge, gear and displays due to new research and suppliers.
The Conroi Motto is “With all, For All.” We are here to enjoy our individual interests but also to support others in our group in their interests. Another aspect of Conroi is the bringing together individuals or groups of re-enactors so the Living History aspects of our hobby can be enhanced and improved through Workshops, Living History Events, Historical Shows. Re-enactors from other groups do not have to be a member of Conroi to enjoy the activities we will be organising. We love individuals or groups attending with us as it is our firm belief is that we all (the living history/re-enactment community) have something to bring to an event, even if it is just your presence.
Our focus for Abbey 2016 is 1250-1325AD, with some specific displays related to Simon De Monfort and 1264, including the significant range of events leading to the change for the governing structure in England and the birth of the modern day parliament.
Around the encampment, the Conroi will show everyday living items and activities from around this time period. Lord Frederick will oversee the Baronial Court, Sir William will lead the Conroi banner in the William Marshall Tourney. Head Squire Henri will be keeping the younger squires in line and working hard.
We are joined this year by a newly hired Mercenary Band (Mercenaries of Western Europe) who will display stout hearts during battles, provide guards for Lord Frederick. Captain Ranjie has his hands full controlling his mercenary band however is supported by the experienced Sergeant John DeLuc. No easy task going by the presence of one of the mercenaries in the Baronial Court on charges of drunk and disorderly.
Overseeing all this are the true commanders of the camp, Lady Marguerite and Lady Emma.
