"The Good Toun's Company of Foot"


Interesting in taking the shilling?


The Edinburgh City Guard re-enactment group is always looking for enthusiastic new members. You would be sure of a warm welcome, and you don't have to commit until you are sure it is for you.


Re-enactment is a highly rewarding hobby, and the more you put in to it the more you get back. Participation is voluntary but based on an very reasonable annual free (currently just £5) and compliance with our common sense rules and regs. If you wish to use black powder weapons we will help you apply for the correct licences.


Almost all of our events take place over the weekend, and we travel widely and often camp. Family membership is welcome too, and there are roles for period civilians too. We have members from all over Scotland.
