[AET] Kingdom 12th Night

We invite all good gentles to join in the merriment and cheer at the Aethelmearc Kingdom Twelfth Night celebration on Saturday, January 12, 2008 in the Barony of Endless Hills. The event will be held at the Lackawanna Heritage Valley Authority/Saint Rose Academy, 1300 Old Plank Road, Mayfield, PA, 18407.

We have procured a most marvelous hall for feasting, meetings, courts and dancing! Bring your best garb and revel in our sun-filled atrium! The hall opens at 9 am and closes at 9:30 pm. This is a discretely damp site (period containers please), and enclosed flame is allowed. The site is fully handicapped accessible and there is adequate parking for all vehicles. A bounteous lunch is included with the site

The day will be filled with dancing (instruction included!), a period games tournament with prizes – and of course, meetings! There will be children’s activities for the younger populace and A&S contests for best late period (post-1500) garb, best accessory and best festive holiday tart (be crowned the Queen of Tarts!), all with fabulous prizes! At Her Majesty’s gracious request, there will also be a contest for best hat, for which She is personally providing the prize.

Their Majesties will be choosing their bardic champion at this event, so come prepared to sing, regale us with tales, and otherwise entertain.

A fabulous Italian Feast will finish the day – followed by much dancing and revelry!

Special highlights of the day will include an artisan’s forum and a Pas d’Armes Tournament hosted by the Company of St. Michael.
