On Saturday, March 18th, 2006, the long-hallowed Performers' Revel will take place in its traditional location in the vasty halls of Caer Bear. The theme of the event is as it has always been - this is a revel of performers, by performers and for performers, and as such, all who attend must contribute one performance for the delight of your fellows. But Fear Not! "Performance" casts a wide net. There will be singing and dancing and poetry and story-telling and the playing of instruments and jokery and juggling and dramatic presentations and anything else that you can make a case for as a Performance Art! Novice performers are especially welcome!

Mummers prance, jesters grin, laughter swells like the seas, Archers shoulder their quivers full and music fills the air. Juggler's entrance, food delights, excitement buzzes like the bees, Fencers flash their blades dazzling and little children stare.
