Is membership for you?


Who is it for


The ARA is there to support re-enactors to enjoy their hobby whether you are:

  • a veteran re-enactor
  • a member of a well established or long running re-enactment group
  • new to re-enacting or 
  • are doing reenacting with a number of different groups


The ARA offers members, event organisers and the public, advice and guidance on such things as performance and display safety and the reasonable presentation of historical accuracy in recreational re-enactment activities.


Public liability protection


The ARA provides services such as public liability insurance for a wide range of re-enactment activities to help support independent groups and individuals to pursue their unique re-enactment interests in the manner that best suits each individual and group.





The ARA also acts to represent members’ interests in areas such as legislation that affects re-enactment activities.

Authenticity or “Historical Accuracy” is a noble pursuit and should be encouraged in all forms of re-enactment.
However, because authenticity levels, periods and styles, or even what the word "authenticity" means is different for many groups and individuals it does not fit under the ‘common interests’ of re-enactors.

It is therefore an area best managed by groups and individuals in accordance with their own choice and preference.
After all, the group(s) you belong to will know best how they want to represent themselves to the public, other re-enactors and to potential new members, so who are we to dictate?
