Getting Medieval in London


Welcome to Thamesreach, the London Shire of the Society for Creative Anachronism! We are part of a society that investigates and re-enacts fighting, arts, crafts and sciences from the Dark to Middle Ages. We are a generalist group, covering the pre 1600s. Our focus is to enjoy ourselves while re-creating history. Our activities include medieval armoured combat, Renaissance rapier combat, archery, medieval and Renaissance dancing, historical cooking, historical costuming and more.
