Finding Us

Our meetings and practices are open to all; anyone wishing to attend an event is given all the help they need in borrowing or making an outfit to wear, as well as a crash-course on basic medieval etiquette. In addition to meets and practices, we have "special interest" nights, where local members meet in each others homes to discuss common topics of interest, from vintning and brewing, costuming and research, armouring to making and playing medieval games. These are also open to all interested parties.

If you'd rather make personal contact with a human being before just showing up at a meeting (which you can do!) then feel free to contact either the Seneschal (group leader) or the Chatelaine (newcomer welcome). Both offices do change people from time to time and the current office-holders can be found on the Our People page.
