Who are the Fairfax Battalia
The Fairfax Battalia. is a re-enactment group which recreates the military and civilian life of a company of soldiers from the period of the English Civil War (1642-1651).

We recreate a 17th century infantry company based on Sir Thomas Fairfax's New Model Army regiment (1st Regiment of Foot) c.1645. For a brief biography of Sir Thomas Fairfax himself, click here. We can, however, also present other periods of the English Civil War era as required - including 1642 Trained Bands and the Restoration army of 1660.

Our dedication to producing quality interpretations of military & domestic situations has won us a high reputation amongst sponsors, public & academics.

Further, we have obtained an excellent record of working with event organisers, TV companies and other sponsors in a thoroughly professional yet friendly manner.

How much does it cost?

You have to join two organisations in order to 'play';
1/ Walton's Regiment (and thus Fairfax battalia)
2/ The Roundhead Association (R.A.)

The combined annual costs (for 2004) are:

Soldier           22
Non Fighting      18
Junior <18        18
Family *          30

* Family is 2 adults and any number of children under 16.

This represents terrific value for money given that camping sites and facilities are free at each event, lunch is often provided, you get to play in some amazing places and for some events, depending on sponsorship, other items of your weekends away are covered. (e.g. travel to European events.)

So what else do you have to pay? In general, the cost of getting to and from most UK events, your beer and food money and of course the cost of making or buying clothes and other kit over a period of time. (In Walton's we operate a kit loan system for newcomers and others.)
