Who Are We, What Do We Do?

Stuart Oden-Walder

Organiser performer and fixer, Stuart has been at the coal face of many events over the past 30 years.  Equally at home talking about the finer points of the American Revolutionary Wars, the dos and donts of trench fighting or the joys of Soviet tank Driving Stuart is truly a one man show. Added to this his ability to not only source equipment and performers but to turn them into an entertaining, informative show, Stuart brings a real can do attitude to the History Show team.

Nick Pennock

A latecomer to reenactments, merely 18 years, Nick has performed in pageants, living history, mounted displays and of course battles both in the UK and abroad. He has also devised, scripted and managed military themed displays and events large and small from arena displays of 20 horsemen to entertaining talks as a one man show. Nick brings wide historical knowledge, a penchant for performance and hard headed managerial skills to the History Show Team.

Recent Testimonials

I was pleased to be able to use the services of Nick and Stuart several times over the past few years commemorating  Lincolnshire in the Great War. They entertained and informed the crowd throughout the weekend with displays and talks, and brought horses back to our old barracks for the first time in 100 years. I would have them here every weekend.

Steve Dunk, Museum of Lincolnshire Life

I was the originator and organiser of a First World War commemoration at the 2015 Herefordshire Country Fair.  In this role I involved Nick Pennock and Stuart Oden-Walder to provide suitable re-enactment and arena support.  They sourced suitable mounts for the cavalry and was able lay on an impressive demonstration with eight horses and riders.  In association with the ‘Lest We Forget’ replica Mk 4 tank, they set up a tented camp to display Period weaponry as well a supplying infantry support for the arena display.  I can safely say that without their contribution we would have struggled to mount such a crowd-pleasing event.

I have had the opportunity to be involved with Stuart and Nick on many occasions over the last twenty years, their energy and enthusiasm for what they do never ceases to amaze me. They have the ability to make the public feel completely at ease and are as engaging as they are knowledgeable. Stuart has an attention to detail that is second to none and they both pride their selves in the authenticity that they bring to any show they are asked to partake in. You only need to look at some of the photographs on this site to understand just how good they are.
