Current Weapon

We currently practice the longsword according to Fiore dei Liberi.


We train usually every 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month (see confirmed dates for exceptions), 10am to 12 noon at the Shakespeare Hall, Durham Community Association (address below).

To get started, you do not need to own any gear. Training weapons will be provided to start with. In time, members are expected to purchase their own weapons and protective equipment (e.g. fencing masks, gauntlets, gambesons).

The session cost £10 (if we are fewer that 10 people) or £7.50 (if we are 10 or more) as we try to keep cost down and are not running for profit. Prospective students have 4 sessions where they do not have to become a full member. After the probation period, if they want to become full members, there is a £15 yearly fee to help cover costs.
