Prima Spada School of Fence
Prima Spada is an historical fencing school specialising in rapier of the Elizabethan period.
We train people from absolute beginners in a variety of 16th century weapon codes including rapier, sword, sword and buckler, 2 handed sword, rapier and dagger and rapier and cape.
We also train in classical foil, sabre and competitive rapier and sword work. Using a well developed syllabus with qualified instructors, Prima Spada offers fencing tuition from the 16th century through to the modern era in exhibition and sport fencing with a recreational approach.
Women in History
Women in History is a group of passionate women re-enacters who specifically want to bring life the contribution of women throughout history.
We have chosen to re-enact women that we can display individually and as a group from many European countries, their political influences, careers and social classes from time lines between 600-1600AD.
We have a programme running through each day with presentations and workshops on the women we represent – some saints and some sinners that will be both interesting and inspiring.
