A BATTLE re-enactment group is reforming in Great Yarmouth after a three-year break.

Warband is looking for new members to join its group with the aim of taking part in shows, festivals and fetes across the Yarmouth and Waveney area. The Gorleston-based group, headed by Jason Eldred, is appealing for new members aged 17 and above to join the group, which in the past has performed at Martham and Yarmouth carnivals.

Mr Eldred said: “Its amazing fun. You keep fit and active and get to learn about history.”

Members will handle several types of weapons including swords and shields and training sessions are held at Fritton Woods and Burgh Castle.

Anyone interested in joining can call Mr Eldred on 07882 079471 or email obelixsheildbreaker@yahoo.co.uk.
