Suffolk Free Company : About, Events & Contact

The Suffolk Free Company is a group of friends who share a common interest; bringing the past to life; both military and domestic.

Many of the Company met at Kentwell Hall in Suffolk, where they were introduced to Historical Interpretation and Recreation of Tudor times.

In 2009 we decided to branch out and travel back in time and create a Medieval Household, thus the SFC was created. Since then the group has grown and fought in battles, skirmishes and tourneys all over England.

The Suffolk Free Company specialise in bringing to life Historical sites and buildings, sometimes as part of larger events and sometimes all by ourselves.

  The Suffolks like to avoid generalisations, simply saying an event is Medieval or Tudor is not enough for us: We like to try and represent a specific point in those times, so when we are at an event it might be 1471, 1530 or 1588.
The Suffolks are experienced Historical Interpreters, we enjoy both 1st person and 3rd person Interpretation. Which means we will happily assume the role, mind set and speech of a person from the time portrayed; or talk to the public about times past as Historical experts.
  Events 2017
2017 is going to be an interesting year for the SFC with new members and some new events.
