What we do

The York City Levy is a group of experienced living history enthusiasts who portray the men, women and children of the second half of the 15th century.

We’re a friendly, fun group of both individuals and families and pride ourselves on our high standard of authentic costume and equipment, providing a professional yet inclusive approach to public events.

The York City Levy concentrates on civilian living history from 1455 to 1500; this includes the Wars of the Roses and the reign of the early Tudors. Our aim is to be engaging, entertaining and to educate visitors on life for those living during this time.

This year's events

Sadly due to the ongoing situation with the global pandemic we are unable to bring you this years list of events.

We are currently working with event organisers across the country to hopefully put something together later in the year.
