Cittie of London Brigade, The Armie of Parliament, Sealed Knot
The Cittie of London Brigade are experienced at organising, delivering and participating in all sorts of events. We have arranged and delivered events at World Heritage Sites, Royal Historic Palaces, Stately Homes and many other types of heritage venues for many different types of sponsors. We can provide short sharp choreographed displays, or day long events designed to keep the visiting public engaged and involved.
unique venues & high profile sponsors
Members of the Cittie of London Brigade have taken part in many events. They have completed filming assignments for the BBC and numerous other production companies, and some of our members even get named credits as Historical Consultants. We have completed scripted and timed performances as shown above at the Fort Nelson Tattoo in 2012 for Royal Armouries.
We have designed, prepared and organised Sealed Knot Major Musters at Blenheim Palace in 2013 (a World Heritage Site) with an enormous Living History camp on and off the battlefield; the 370th anniversary of the Battle of Naseby in 2015 (the most significant battle in England since Hastings) and recreating the king's jail of 1647 at Holdenby House, Northamptonshire in 2016.
We also enjoy repeat events at Museums, Royal Historic Palaces, the town and Abbey of Crowland, and numerous other heritage venues. These range from a few reenactors, a Regimental sized event, a brigade sized event all the way up to a full blown Major Muster with 1,000+ combatants.
