Tony finds authenticity in re-enactment of the utmost importance. His own re-enactment societies and groups therefore strive to be as original and true to the truth as possible. Examples of his re-enactment roles are Sam Gregory (highwayman, mainly known from Dick Turpin & The Gregory Gang) and Captain Jack Vincent (pirate); both based on actual historical figures.

He is also experienced in glass and fire walking and has done this several times for charity. But mostly Tony Rotherham is an historian who loves teaching both children and adults the truth about some of this countries best loved legends.
