Introduction

The Grey Company is a group which puts on displays of historical reenactment. We are based in Perth, which is the capital city of Western Australia. Most of our displays are centered on the so called Dark Ages of European History (600-1100AD). While our displays are primarily of weapons and combat, The Grey Company are not a martial arts group, concentrating more on entertaining an audience than on the realistic use of weapons. Apart from entertaining, we also try to educate members of the public about life as it really was one thousand or more years ago. Where possible we are happy to arrange displays for schools where children have the opportunity to see and feel items which they would otherwise only learn about from books.

All the clothing, weapons and armour are made by members of the group. Finding out how to do this involves some of the members of the group in detailed research in areas of history, as well as the practical aspects of actually making items. To help with this we hold regular workshops primarily for the production of clothing and equipment including weapons and armour. We also have a very active Costuming Guild.

As well as our regular weekly training sessions we also organise social events which include several banquets each year.
