THEY ARE TALKING

COMPANIES AND CRAFTSMEN OF EUROPE WERE IN TIFFAUGES
Practicing the reconstruction, and not the evocation, medieval XIVth century since 2013, I can attest to the high quality of the reconstruction troops present as well as that of the artisans in animation. Anyone, passionate about history, quality reconstruction or not, could live in immersion this weekend at the Château de Tiffauges. Participating in this event of excellence is the ideal dream of the medieval world.

Marina LE DORNER

Enlumineur Atelier Scriptoria Mina
To bring my little testimony, I would say that the Medieval Tiffauges are part of these too rare events where historical quality and organizational quality meet. I have been on medieval festivals for 15 years and I can say that the Médiévales de Tiffauges know how to stand out. A historic quality and also important by the number of speakers is very rare in France and the public is not mistaken. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the public, who, aware of this historic quality, was curious and interested.

Jimmy LE CORDIER

Confection
This weekend made me discover a very beautiful place occupied by a group of speakers of a high level of reconstruction that I have never seen in 15 years of animation. Despite the terrible weather, the speakers did their job and the audience was there. Good weather would surely have made for much better attendance at the height of an event of this quality.

Yves SCHMITZ

Les Forges de Mitgard
We had a great weekend during the event in Tiffauges, it is rare to see events with troops having a good level and the will to make the reconstruction. I can only support this kind of initiative, finally an event which is not yet another medieval festival with Ragnard the viking in 18th kilt. It was also very pleasant to meet great figures of historic crafts such as Jimmy Le Cordier, Gaël Fabre and Yves Schmitt, I have never had an event with such a concentration of renowned craftsmen and to my knowledge It's a first.

Rudolf HARYWALD

Armorer
Hi, Gerard! Once again I want to thank you for the excellent preparation and organization of the festival in the castle of Tiffauges. We came to you for the second time, and both times there was a great program for both reenactors and spectators. Placing us in families gave us the opportunity to get to know your hospitable people better. We hope that in the future we will see you again at festivals in your castle.

Tiffauges 2019, have been a nice positive surprise for us. We heard already last year from yhis event from our italian friends, so we wanted to participate in Tiffauges 2019. For the long distance we decide to come by plane and land at Nantes were we rented a car. this was only possible because the organisation of the Event Tiffauges gave as the possibility to sleep in one of their tents and food was as welle organised for us .It is very rare to get that kind of nice hostility in the re-enactment scene. The combination of the medieval castle of Tiffauges and the new educative artefacts and their functionality to show it to the audience is good combination, also for reenactors to learn something from this artefacts or to see how it works. The role-playing Tiffauges 1368 of the event itself was very good with this also non-french reenactors have to dedicate some time to the local history of the place, France and Bretagne. The best of the event was the high quality of all the participants in costume and armour. The good feeling is that we non-french people could see that all the French reeanectment- groups are very excited about this event and honour also the place of the castle Tiffauges. So we will come next year again if we will be invited.

It is with great pleasure that I participate with my Company since the first edition of this event. I can, I must, note with admiration, the interest and the effort that the organizers lend to assure, to the public and to the participating re-enactors, a very high level of historical reconstruction, followed in detail and organization. This magnificent idea of ​​an event that evolves from year to year has made an increasing number of reconstructing friends interested in participating from Italy. For the next edition, other companies would already like to participate. In addition to this magnificent historical and cultural attention, it is truly commendable to admire the hospitality and friendship that is reserved for us. We are in constant contact during the days with beautiful and friendly people, of exquisite hospitality. All this makes this event unique and I can only rejoice in being part of it. For our part, we will therefore strive to be always present and more and more numerous.
