Wuffa ...... feature in events and living history displays around East Anglia. We cover the Dark Age Period that includes Saxons and Vikings.....we also get involved with other groups including Saxon and Romano-British.
Many of our members are experienced in re-enactment....many are novices...we welcome all.......male and female....any ages. Although you do need to be 18 to take part in any public combat with other groups, younger members are welcome to take part in combat at our own shows if they are accompanied by a carer or parent...... non-combatants can also take part in living history or have non combatant roles at our events.....such as camp followers, cooks, musicians, hostages and royalty (in event scenarios).
And If you are a history buff who doesn't want to get involved in the combat...you are still welcome....and will have a huge contribution to make.....we have living history on display at events. Lets face it life was tough back then but they did..... eat, make clothes and live their lives, i am sure you can think of more!!
We practice weekly on a THURSDAY evening at Cliff Park Junior School, Orde Avenue, Gorleston, Norfolk, NR31 6TA- 7.00pm to 9.30pm. Bus stop from Lowestoft/Yarmouth/Martham at James Paget Hospital , a 5 minute walk away.
We are interested in Dark Age crafts people that make Dark Age musical instruments, crafts, cooking implements, jewellrey, clothes etc or entertainers,story tellers, pagan shaymen, joining us for our living history displays.
Why book Wuffa?...this is what some of our patrons said in 2017...
'.....we loved having you and for the first time i got to see some of your fighting amongst other things, I have had nothing but great feedback from everyone, your story teller made an impression from what i hear and went down well,
We will definitely have you back again on the 1st September 2018.
Thank you again for your fantastic efforts and we look forward to seeing you all again soon, please pass on my thanks to all of your team'
