People Dressing up 1 of several

Went to a re-enactment at Spetchley Park Gardens in August with the boys. They had the lot. Greeks, Romans, vikings, English and American civil wars, The Boer War, WW1 and 2...and more! Weather was lousy at first but I did manage to get some snaps when the deluge ended. Not as many as i would have liked but here are a selection

I guess he is a Viking, Bill? He must have been growing that beard for years for the special day
Bill Phillips: A Viking indeed Lisl. Welcome back

I wonder what he's meant to represent? Perhaps he is an ancient Droitwichian wrapped up against the freezing brine of centuries past..
Bill Phillips: He is a friendly Viking.... Which sounds a bit like an oxymoron

The Britons are famous for their re-enactement - he looks lik a Viking boy! I see Lisl is present again.
Bill Phillips: This one was on a grand scale. Yes nice to see her back
And even though he's trying to look the part, you can tell he's just a teddy bear, Bill, right?! smile
Bill Phillips: He doesn't look like he goes pillaging villages and carrying off the womenfolk

Bill Phillips: No he probably dresses like this all the time

I expect the boys enjoyed themselves Bill. I’m trying to calculate what several minus one is.
Bill Phillips: They did and it is a large number, even by your standards

Is this before the chap changed in to his costume?
Bill Phillips: I believe he said he works for the Ordnance survey
He has really put his heart into this part.........a good portrait Bill smile
Bill Phillips: He was thoroughly enjoying himself Martin
A fine shot Bill, did Vikings really have bellies that big!
Bill Phillips: I suspect they did Brian.😀
He could have walked right out of the history books, Bill. Excellent portrait.
Bill Phillips: He certainly looked the part Beverly
I think he has been well fed and let out after dinner.
Bill Phillips: A well fed Viking is a happy Viking

Dressing up is good fun.
Bill Phillips: As you well know Comrade
A viking?
Bill Phillips: I think he was the Viking equivalent of the head of catering
