What is the Napoleonic Association?

Since its formation in 1975, the Napoleonic Association has acted

as an umbrella organisation that supports people with a common

interest in the Napoleonic period, spanning the French Revolution

to the decisive action at the Battle of Waterloo (1793-1815).

Made up of Re-enactors, Researchers and Wargamers, our membership meet regularly to bring to life the social and military activities of this ‘Age of Elegance’, at events

across the UK and overseas.

Whether you seek to join us or hire us for your event or film production we welcome you to
 our website and invite you to contact us.

Historical Re-enactment

Our events recreate the lives of soldiers and camp followers on campaign during the Napoleonic Wars. Through exciting battle re-enactments, living history encampments and dramatic performances you will witness one of the most colourful periods of history. 

When you walk into the Allied or French encampments you will see for yourselves the commitment and attention to detail paid by the re-enactors who live, eat and sleep there throughout the event.


Chat to them and they will entertain and educate you with their knowledge and experiences. Become one of them and you will discover more about this period in history than any book could ever teach you!
