  • Living History Trader Invitation, Information & Application

    It is with great pleasure that we invite you to demonstrate at England's Medieval Festival.
  • Living History Trader Information

    Living History Traders are true medieval purists; living the medieval period throughout the weekend, dressed completely in authentic medieval garb and trading authentic-style wares from authentic points, giving the illusion that one really has stepped back in time! Indeed, many have no wares to sell, preferring to live and demonstrate life as it was all those years ago.

    To be a Living History trader, you must only trade at medieval events and use an authentic style tent (as your trading pitch is considered an attraction as much as a point of sale). Living History Traders must dress in authentic style costume of the period, and most importantly a Living History Trader will demonstrate their trade to the public throughout the day.

    It is acknowledged that Living History Traders and Demonstrators mostly do what they do for the love of their trade and not necessarily for financial gain and therefore there is no charge for participating as a Living History Trader at England's Medieval Festival.

    Living History Trader Requirements

    All Living History Traders must register to participate. It is important to complete this form in full, giving all the information required. Confirmation of the trading space(s) is made upon receipt of the completed form and the registration fee. All relevant trader information is forwarded by email prior to the start of the festival.

    The exact dimensions of your tent and with guy ropes (Total Frontage x Total Depth) must be included on the Living History Trader's Form - this will be the area you are allocated.

    Additional weekend trader passes are £45 each (for extra trader staff who are required to work in your trading space all day/each day of the event including Participant camping area access - not for use by family and friends for event entry only).
