The dates for the fifth Historia Originata have been announced. 

It will be held on the first weekend of March, Saturday the 2nd and Sunday the 3rd, 2013 at the Rheged Centre, near Penrith in Cumbria.

Hours for the show

Saturday 10am – 5pm

Sunday 10am – 4pm

Historia Originata was created as a trade show aimed at re-enactors and history/museum professionals in northern England,  Scotland and N Ireland.  Following on from the first three shows in Carlisle,  the fair moved to the Rheged Centre for the fourth show in 2012 where the venue proved to be an excellent choice.

The show is so popular that the traders who attended are already booking their spaces for 2013. The list of traders attending in 2013 will be available as they confirm, but for now you can see the range of traders from March 2012 show in the list to the left.

Admission to Rheged free of charge,
entry to fair £1 per adult, accompanied under 12s free.
