Friends family and fun
Displays and re-enactment are not the whole of life in Lisles. For a collection of individuals from all walks of life and spread across all of the UK we are a very close knit group. More of an extended family than a re-enactment regiment. We have common interests and enjoy the camaraderie of working hard together to produce quality displays and shows. We are joined together by our desire to be the best at whatever we do. The glue that keeps us together is having fun. Re-enactment is a great hobby and the presentation and displays are serious. Once these are over you are left in a field somewhere in the countryside with many mates around you ready to have some fun.
We are a family friendly regiment. Many of our members have children and grandchildren. Some have grown up in the regiment and we have four generations of the same family at events quite often.

Joining with the rest of the society in the beer tent. Many events have a licensed beer tent with live music. Lisles are often found jumping around to the band.

All ages enjoy the friendship

Custard Pie fight: One marquee, 100's of paper plates, gallons of instant custard, an electric urn and drills with a plaster whisk and a lot of people in evening dress.
Custard pies: About to kick off... Count to 10 and throw.

After the pie fight: Evening dress, custard pies and 5 minutes of mayhem.
The fun continues into the evening.
Fancy dress and other reasons for frivolity. From time to time we get together in various stages of fancy dress. Some images from recent get togethers.
