Next edition dates to be announced (the event was last held in 2012)
Stanton St. John village (Oxfordshire county)
The Campaign of Stanton St. John is a private event run as part of the Charte d'Histoire Vivante and created by reenactors for reenactors. The participants immerse themselves for a weekend in the life of a soldier of Napoleonic period, reenacting the events of 1812, according to the scenario. The general public is not present during the reenactments.
The main aim of the event is to make the experience of the history as enjoyable and as realistic as possible in the modern times. The scenario is designed to recreate the invasion of Napoleon in the west coast of England, while the Royal Navy is stretched by the American War of the 1812, and the tactical manoeuvres of the both opposed forces near the university city of Oxford. The event is held in Stanton St. John, a village in Oxfordshire about 7 km northeast of the centre of Oxford. Please visit the official website for the details of the actual scenario and the requirements for participation.
Please contact the Organizers for confirmation and further details.
