A very warm welcome to Thamesreach. On this site you will find information about us and the many activities we organise and enjoy.
The Shire of Thamesreach covers the area inside the M25, the London orbital motorway. If you live within this area or are visiting, or just have an interest, please come and join in! We’re a sociable bunch who are always happy to welcome newcomers, young and old.
Elsewhere on this site you’ll find information about who we are, what we get up to and how you can join in. If you have any questions or suggestions, please get in touch.
Visiting London on holiday? Please check the Visitors Pages, which we wrote especially for SCA folk who want to know the most important stuff to see and squeeze in, while in town.
Thamesreach activity overview
We’re an active group! See the right-hand menu for detailed descriptions, but here are the highlights.
We hold gatherings once a month, consisting of an afternoon of activities and an evening of feasting, celebrating the arts of both war and peace. Activities range from arts and craft classes to period fighting to whatever personal projects the members of our shire are working on.
Our shire business meetings are at revels; take half an hour to plan coming activities, shared projects, and events to attend.
Monthly social meetings for a drink are after work, at 18.30 on the 3rd Monday of the month, at The Somers Town Coffee House, on Charlton Street, between Euston and Kings Cross Stations. All members, new and old, are welcome.
Weekly armoured combat and fencing practice is on!
Wednesday evening, 7-9 pm in the East end. See the fighting and fencing pages for details.
Arts and sciences
Strictly Social – ‘Museum and Beer’ trips
To take advantage of the wealth of cultural resources in London, we try to get to a museum for an after-work view of a few artifacts, before going for a beer. You can decide which part of the evening is most important!
These periodic outings are booked via the Thamesreach list, as and when the fancy strikes. Join the list and keep up to date.
