a few more details about yourself would be usefull ie age also most groups are not all from one area most cover members from around the country, do you have transport since events are all over the place so transport is a must

I would recommend joining an established group first, the travel is somewhat irrelevant as even if you form a local group you will end up travelling all over the country to the public shows and private battles etc.

Get a couple of years experience of the scene, get your kit right etc, before starting your own group. Mainly because nothing annoys seasoned reenactors more than a bunch of newbies who wear the wrong kit, wear it back to front, and generally let the side down in the eyes of the public... :? :D

These chaps give sound advice. Look for some shows local to you and see if any groups are there, go visit them and have a chat. That is how I found my first group, I met my current group 5 years later. Word of warning, this is not a cheep hobby, I do it on a small budget so am not always 100% authentic (but I try and get close), the kits etc can set you back several hundred pounds. Do not buy it all at once, and look for second hand stuff, unless you have plenty of spare cash.
