Sharpe Appreciation Society was formed in 1996 amid
demands from fans wanting more information about
books, TV series, the people involved in making the series,
Napoleonic period, weaponry, in fact anything remotely
connected with Sharpe.
After finding there was no central point of contact for fans
late Chris Clarke, then Secretary, made contact with
Rutherford Moore (historical and technical advisor to
Sharpe series) and wrote to the author Bernard Cornwell
as Malcolm Craddock, one of the producers.
With Richard Moore's help Chris started the fan club in July
expecting 50 - 100 fans to join her. At it's height the Society
4000+ members world-wide. In May 1998 the Society held
first convention, where we were joined by Bernard Cornwell,
Craddock, Muir Sutherland, and some of the Actors
involved in bringing the world of Sharpe to life. It said a lot for
passion held for Sharpe by the fans as well as the Actors who
continuously came along to various events to meet fans.
We are still the official fan club,
