No, that’s not Jonny Depp! It’s Sam Morton and Sammi Wynn-Jones with Arcade assistant Gale Harman. Sam and Sammi are pirate and medieval re-enactors, taking part in shows and fairs around the country. Also an avid pewter tankard collector, Sam often comes into the Arcade looking to expand his collection.
They are members of a re-enactment group based in Basingstoke called The Greyhounds of St Edmund and will be appearing at Loxwood Joust in Sussex on Saturday 1st August.
