This unique event returns for it’s THIRD year! Specialised Retail therapy for Re-enactors, LARPER’s and people interested in interesting objects and traditional crafts. Plus it’s in and a genuine privately owned Medieval Castle not usually open to the public.

This  genuine Castle, once owned by the Neville Earls of Westmorland, has a lot of history. It 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 in it’s third yearwith traders coming from far afield such as Poland purveying a large and varied selection of re-enacting & LARP merchandise  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.
