The Regiment is part of The Sealed Knot Society, (SK), being part of the largest re-enactment society in Europe we travel to destinations across the UK, with thousands of others, to re-enact the English Civil Wars. But not only do we re enact the historic battles with Pike, Musket, Horse, Cannon and Drum, our ever growing Regiment has taken on new civilian and Military roles ranging from a Bodger, Cooks, Spinners, Sutler, tent maker, Paymaster, battlefield surgeon and even our very own Regimental Priest. Who can all be seen at our local Regimental events as well as at our larger living history displays with the Sealed Knot.
The modern regiment has been active in the Thames Valley area for over 35 years and now has members in, Berkshire, Hampshire, Oxfordshire, Wiltshire and Buckinghamshire, with large numbers of members in Newbury, Abingdon and Wallingford, we also have members a far away as Lincolnshire.
The Regiment regularly gets together throughout the year to hold events in Newbury, Berkshire, this can range from re-enacting mini battles, skirmishes to Living History events and school visits. At the beginning and at the end of the year we visit our ancestral home of Donnington Castle near Newbury for training, recruiting, meetings or just socialising.
