Join the QLHF
Are you passionate about history? Would you love to learn ancient crafts or combat skills? Keep reading to find out how to become part of our re-enactment family and bring history to life.
Starting a group:
If you have started or are starting a living history group and would like to be part of the Queensland Living History Federation please complete our online application form or contact us for more information.
While most of our member groups are re-enactment groups based in Queensland, membership is also available to groups based in other states.
Membership is also available groups that aren’t re-enactment groups, such as preservation societies (preserving music, artefacts, skills, crafts or historical sites) and research societies (researching a particular period or field in world history).
We look at a number of criteria when reviewing an application – these include the sources you use for your research, your current kit (clothing, equipment, tents etc.), and your overall goals as a group.
We recommend that you have a look at our members section to get a better idea of what our Federation groups are doing.
