Lenzburg (28. - 30.7.2017)

Adrian von Bubenberg is about to finish his second term as bailiff on Lenzburg, and is looking forward to return to Berne. But before he leaves the castle to his successor, he wants to demonstrate to the townspeople of Lenzburg, that Berne has come, conquered and intents to stay.  

Thus men at arms practice their skills, and the rest of the camp falls in with the display of Bernese power and wealth. Come and visit us, the camp is open to visitors from Friday 28th to Sunday 30 July, daily 10-17h

Announcing Koeniz, near Bern

"I cannot and I will not recant anything for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe. God help me. Amen." (Martin Luther in Worms, 1521)

Koeniz' Protestant church council is holding a string of commemoration events linked to the publication of Luthers 95 theses, back in 1517 what kickstarted brooding religious reform (and consequent wars) all over Europe.
They have invited us to present the world of a generation before, the 15th century, often nicknamed "the autumn of the Middle Ages" where everyday life and action was intertwined with religious customs and superstition. Where cultural seeds were spread what would only come to bloom a genre ration later. A world, where religion, contrary to today, influenced daily actions and were taken as a matter of 'of course'. To thus demonstrate, against the fully grown and developed culture Luther spoke out against, and to make their guests understand, why it was such a courageous or nearly suicidal move.

We are very much looking forward to bring back life to the village like setting around Köniz castle, with it's different buildings and multiple little and grand squares.

Come and visit us, the camp opens to visitors on Friday July 7, 1517h :-)

Tommy Hellman

Another legend and a dear dear friend has fallen.

The Nestor of Swedish Re-Enactment, Tommy Hellman has succumbed to the cancer demon at an age of 70. He truly was the Grand Old Man of the Living History scene in Sweden.

Chillon - October 2, 2016

On next Sunday (October 2), in the framework of the first Swiss Castles' Day, a small artillery team of the Company of Saynt Georges will display cannon shooting at the famous Chillon Castle in Switzerland. Four shooting sessions are planned in the outer garden, between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. When not having fun playing with guns, the team will be busy training in the first courtyard. Our Captain Mathieu and some devoted soldiers will be happy to meet you there!
