Time Bandits Time Bandits
is a new development in historical interpretation and living history/drama, from first person recounting to skirmishes and battle reenactments. Our approach is led by the needs and aspirations of the client, we advise and devise in terms of scripting, location and action. The uniqueness of our approach lies in the concept of working with the client or sponsor to tailor a presentation.
We're looking, for 2017/2018 to broaden our WWII offer and set up a section devoted to Home Guard & Auxiliers, plenty opportunities for all ages and, of course, plenty of spies and saboteurs needed - contact us if you're interested. A Testimonial To The Time Bandits
I really just want to say a huge thank you to John, Bill and Rosie for a fabulous day, you really brought Roman Britain to life.The children will remember it for many years to come I am sure and were very excited to tell their parents all they had learned at home time. A day spent with the Time Bandits is worth a week in front of a powerpoint or a computer. Mary Douglas All Saints School. Lanchester

Time Bandits aims, as the slogan says, to bring history to life in a manner which is both informed and entertaining. We presently have a core group of around six dedicated members and this needs to grow. We'd be delighted to hear from anyone interested in re-enactment, drama, period crafts, historical interpretation. You don't need any kit initially, nor any experience, the use of most of your faculties, own teeth and a sense of humour would assist.
