Victorian events are relatively new for me. Victorian events are growing in popularity, especially at Christmas time and we 'dabble' In the 19th century I am not aiming to represent anyone of 'quality my hair and beard dont really allow it.
I don't have a massive interest in the Victorian period, however as Victoirans often come up in my school work and I wargame Victoriania and Cos Play Steampunk, so getting Victorian kit seemed pretty natural.

I started off as a dodgy pub dweller, but I am an enthusiastic reenactor and a faceless role like this doesn't really do it for me. In 2012 we spent two weekends at Kentwell Hall taking part in the 1869 Christmas reeanactment and I felt obliged to do some research to find out about the period and to provide me with a back story.
