Richard Cartwright

Rich In History

I am a historian, re-enactor and educator. I have worked in the film industry as a historic advisor, actor, and armourer. My company, "Rich in History" is able to provide educational services to schools and colleges, interest groups, and a wide variety of organisations.

My main area of historical interest is the late Victorian and the Edwardian periods, although I sometimes work outside these periods.

I am a member of several Living History and Re-enactment groups covering the Great War and Victoria's Wars.

I am also a member of "Six of One", the Prisoner Appreciation Society, who meet to bring to life the 1960s television series in Portmeirion, the village in North Wales where the series was filmed. I take a leading role in the Prisoner re-enactments at the annual convention, making use of my Performing Arts qualifications. I am a member of the annual Convention Organisation and Planning Team.

I have worked in several museums, including a canal museum in Sandwell, a glass museum in Stourbridge, and at Dudley Central Museum.

I have also been involved with several film and television productions, both as an actor and as a member of the crew. I was the Armourer at the location trench scenes in the film "Journey's End", released in UK cinemas on 2 February 2018.
