It is 1643 and Sir Gilbert Hoghton’s Companie of Foot are returning south to join the King’s forces as he continues his fight against the Parliamentarians.

Whilst here the Companie will put its men through their paces with Company drill, Pay parade, Company training at sword, pike and musket, skirmish.

Immerse yourself in on of the most turbulent periods of our history and learn about what it was like to be a soldier and a camp follower with the help of the dedicated group of volunteers who form Sir Gilbert Hoghton’s Companie in The Sealed Knot Society.
