The Lichfield Garrison

A 17th Century Re-enactment Group

Raising the Standard of Re-enactment

We specialise in re-creating aspects of both military and civilian 17th century life from common soldier

to Lords and Ladies.

Our main area of expertise however, is the English Civil War

which ravaged the Country in the 1640’s


We concentrate our events in the Midlands and in particular Staffordshire and Lichfield, where the Cathedral Close was garrisoned by both Royalist and Parliamentarian soldiers in the Civil War


We portray soldiers and civilians though living history displays, period drill displays of arms and weapons, and  demonstrations of aspects of everyday life such as cooking, sewing and games and where the opportunity arises we work closely with other societies to enhance our display.


We pride ourselves on being more authentic (accurate in dress accoutrements and demeanour) than a lot of

other groups but we do not go all out for ‘total immersion’ as some do. Our ethos is, “If you are going to do a job do it properly but keep a sense of proportion!”
