2011 marked the 40th anniversary of Napoleonic re-enactment in the UK. A hobby started by La Garde Imperiale. La Garde Imperiale was formed in 1971 to recreate the artillery of the Napoleonic epoch in all its facets. We have achieved much over the last 40 years, the more we do the more we want to do.
La Garde is unique in UK Napoleonic re-enactment in depicting the Imperial Guard Foot Artillery and Artillery Train, who handle La Gardes unique full size full weight field guns. Our Grenadiers a Cheval are the only French Imperial Guard heavy cavalry group in the UK. The Grenadiers a Cheval have strong links and a working relationship with other Grenadiers a Cheval groups in France and Russia, meaning at events we can field 20 or more riders.
Based in UK La Garde has a place for you in our ranks, as either a cannoneer, artisan, musician, driver or civilian. Women and children are also welcome, who have many fulfilling roles to explore within the group.


La Garde Imperiale has a space for you in its ranks.
