North East Re-enactment & LARP Market

Brancepeth Castle from the air.  
Brancepeth Castle from the air.
Sunday 22nd & Sunday 23rd October 2016
10am – 6pm Saturday / 12 Noon – 5pm Sunday
Brancepeth Castle, Brancepeth, Durham. DH7 8DF
Unique! Specialised Retail therapy and a genuine privately owned Medieval Castle not usually open to the public.

This is a genuine Castle, once owned by the Neville Earls of Westmorland, has a lot of history, was HQ for the Durham Light Infantry before falling into neglect and being rescued by the current owners, who are doing their best to restore and preserve it.

Following the first event of it’s kind in the North East in 2015 The North East Re-Enactment & LARP Market is now an annual event, staged the weekend prior to the National Living History Fayre so that traders coming from far afield such as Poland can do more than one market for one ferry or tunnel crossing. This means that there is a large and varied selection of re-enacting & LARP merchandise on sale from far and wide, as well as traders  like ourselves who are very close to home for a change!

The location in the North East is excellent, being easy reach of the A1(M), and close to Durham, Sunderland, Middlesborough, Darlington, Gateshead, Newcastle and not that far from Edinburgh.

We will add more details once we know them.

Check out the organiser’s website at nlhf.co.uk or the event’s Facebook Page.

Large Railway Bag by Evancliffe Leathercraft

We’re pleased to introduce this new railway bag to our range.

Based on an example of an original railway bag, but hand crafted, hand dyed and hand stitched, this is a very tough bag that will last for a long time.

Inside the bag are three pockets which vary in height and depth with a flap which comes over and covers all three.  The face of the flap can include a logo or customisation. (Logo shown in photographs is for illustration only.)  The price also covers stamping initials / name etc. on the reverse of the bag.

The flap is lockable. Two keys are supplied, along with a key ring which matches the colour of the bag.  We can also stamp your chosen initials or railway letters on the keyring.

You can buy this product from our  Railway Related Products shop page.
