The Heriot-Watt Medieval Society is a group for anyone interested in re-creating and re-enacting the life of medieval Scotland.
Our main activities involve medieval combat done in an effective and realistic albeit safe way (no script and no choreography!) as well as crafting all the equipment necessary to portray a medieval persona. Our members take part in training sessions throughout the academic year that prepare them for the so-called ‘Show Season’ during which the group travels up and down the UK to different medieval shows to re-enact various battles and historic events. Apart from that, we are a bunch of extremely friendly and inclusive people that go out on socials all the time. If you ever wanted to take part in some swordplay, learn how to make a lovely medieval dress or just want to try something new and unique – our society is definitely for you! Search for Heriot Watt Medieval Society on Facebook for more information.
You can sign up to the society for free, but if you attend a society session, we will ask for a membership fee of £10.
