Gallus Gael - The Games Re-enactors

Our living history re-enactors have a collective 70+ years of experience!  

Shows are performed regularly helping to raise funds for the Colchester Highland Games & Gathering.

If you are interested in history & would love to try your hand with a sword, musket or just want to dress up and act out a part then contact us here 

To Join

To participate in our combat displays you must be at least 14 years of age though persons of any age are welcome to attend and perform in other capacities at our shows.

All children under 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who is also in the group. 

We take safety very seriously as we do not wear any protective clothing and therefore children must be kept under strict supervision. 

Skill Levels

Historical Re-enactment takes skill and practice in order to perform well.  It can also be a dangerous sport if  certain rules are not adhered to.

We will teach you not only the skills of swordsmanship and showmanship but safety as well.

When we feel you are safe to draw sword you will be given a part to play in the main display.

History Alive

You do not have to be a swordsman/woman to take part in our shows.  If you have an interest in history, enjoy dressing up and having fun, then come along and find out what it is all about.

We also give historical demonstrations on period clothing & interesting facts like our

'Outlander - The fact behind the fiction' show.
