Hosting an Event
If you are running/organising an event that is looking for something different to add value to the show then the Earl of Loudoun's may be the answer you seek.
Unique in Scotland
Unlike the majority of other 're-enactment' groups in Scotland, we are one of the few that are non-commercial, we are made up of members who do the events at high cost to themselves for the love of their hobby. This devotion flows over into the quality of the show they put on. Additionally we are one of the few groups that use 'black powder', not just with musket but with our very own cannon.
The Earl of Loudoun's Regiment is part of the UK wide English Civil War Society. The society is made up of several regiments which have an endless knowledge base on the subject. Depending on the needs of the event this source can supply several regiments, multiple cannon and even cavalry to an event.
A Final Word
Because of the size of our society we attract much greater scrutiny by the Heath and safety Commission and the Police. We therefore have very stringent safety rules and always have Public Liability insurance in place for all our events, we take no unnecessary risks.
We have organised events at Scone Palace, Blairquhan Castle, Stirling Castle, Linlithgow Palace, Fernie Castle, Drum Castle, Provanmill House, Carmichael Estate, Biggar, Prestonpans (this event attracted 12,000 public), Broxburn, Uddingston, Aberdeen, Newburn, Newcastle Castle and many more. We have done film work for Cromwell Videos, SWT, BBC, and Walt Disney. We have also put on a show for Princess Anne as part of a Royal visit to Napier University.
The Earl of Loudoun's Regiment has over 35 years experience of putting on displays of comabt and life from the 17th century, bringing history alive to the satisfaction of both public and sponsor alike. What we provide is both educational and spectacular.
