Sedgefield Frontline Multi-Period Living History Event - June 17th
Photos by Stephen Carr

Sedgefield Frontline was the first event for my GPW in 2017. Fantastic Summer weather was already warming the air as I brought the Jeep out of the garage for the 25 mile trip. This event covers many periods of history, from Normans and Saxons, Romans, The British Empire, American Civil War and World War Two. There were displays and combat performed by the various groups in the arena across the day, as well as smaller displays of artifacts and one on one combat around the displays of each living history group.

Many of the living history groups had demonstrations going on all day, and most were very hands on, allowing the public to handle weapons and artifacts to gain a greater understanding of their use.

This was a three day event, with Friday being open for schools, while Saturday and Sunday were for the general public. My daughter and I were just attending one day, because the same weekend was the Tanfield Railway Steam Gala which we were attending the following day.
