Want to learn about the past? Maybe even experience a bit of it yourself? Then the Medieval Society is for you. 

We are a non-specialist society welcoming students from all disciplines and backgrounds; our only requirement is an interest in the past! Throughout the year we run a broad variety of academic and social events: 

- Lectures 

-Tours and visits to historical sites 

-Pub crawls and quizzes 

-Medieval craft workshops (including HEMA/Swordsmanship) 

-Trips around the UK

We usually run between 1-3 events per month so you can commit as much time as you like. Members also get great benefits, including free refreshments at academic events, access all our events under £10 for free and reduced prices on all events over £10. 

Additionally, if you feel like we should run some different or additional events, get in touch. We love hearing your ideas and thoughts. 

We look forward to meeting you!
