La Belle Public Shows in October

La Belle Compagnie is participating in two public shows this October. La Belle is a living history group focused on English history during the Hundred Year’s War, and right now we are focused on 1388.

The first is from 9am to 5pm on October 4th and 5th in Charlottesville, Virginia; it is called the American History Weekend and will be at the Albemarle County Office Building, 401 McIntire Road. The site is charging $5 per family or individual, and there will be re-enactors and living history interpreters there from several different eras. This being Virginia, there should be lots of Civil War and Colonial Virginia re-enactors; and this year they have expanded the scope to include groups (like ours) who interpret earlier periods history as well.
The second is on October 18th and 19th in Media, Pennsylvania; it is called Medieval Days and it will be at the Colonial Pennsylvania Plantation in Ridley Creek State Park (note: their website is broken, and does NOT show the 2008 events schedule in Firefox nor Safari, though it does work in OmniWeb).

    October 18th; 10am to 5pm (last entry at 4pm)

    October 19th; 10am to 3:30pm (last entry at 2:30pm)

    Admission: Adults $8, Ages 4-12 $6, under 4 get in free

The Plantation is located in Ridley Creek State Park, Edgmont Township, Delaware County, Pennsylvania.

It’s lots of fun for the whole family in either case. Anyone interested in history will like these events, and children studying these periods in school may learn more about history by touching armor or watching embroidery than they do in classrooms.
