Who We Are
Based in Huddersfield, and with a strong connection to the university, the Clarence Household is a large group known for its fighting skills. This is mainly due to frequent training sessions in Huddersfield town centre. These sessions and regular social meetings result in a cohesive group of friends. New members are always welcome, and the group has spare clothing and other equipment to loan to newcomers. The Clarence’s are also members of Livery and Maintenance. The group has some members with armour, and specialities include scripted fighting demonstrations.
What We Do
As a re-enactment society we aim to portray both the military and domestic sides of the household of George Plantagenet, Duke of Clarence. We portray professional fighting men who would guard his estates and wage war in his name. Attired in their household liveries of azure and murry (blue and red), these men would have been expert in the use of spear, billhook, sword, dagger and bow.
We also display the domestic side of life; food and cooking, spinning and textiles including fashion, candle dipping, distilling, gaming and of course drinking.
Aiming to display high levels of authenticity, every effort is made to research and duplicate the clothing, weapons and camp equipment of the time. Many of our items are directly copied from art of the period and archaeological finds, currently held in collections and museums.
