As the Yuletide holidays draw to an end, join us in celebrating the season's finale - Twelfth Night. Their Excellencies Jean-Claude and Alyna will be selecting their next Baronial Artisan, and all artisans are sure to enjoy the day's many activities. Enter a competition, perform a song, dance into the night - or simply enjoy a day to visit and exchange gifts with friends from near and far.
Site: Inter-baronial Twelfth Night will be held at Saint Martin's Episcopal Church, 1333 Jamestown Road, Williamsburg, VA. The church is handicapped-accessible and handicapped parking is available near the front entrance. Site restrictions: no pets, no smoking indoors, no hard liquor (beer and wine are allowed, no original containers please). See link for directions and details.
Arts & Sciences Activities: Their Excellencies Jean-Claude and Alyna will be selecting their next Baronial Artisan from among the Barony's many skilled gentles. There will be other static competitions, as well as a performing-arts competition. Classes include a critical tasting discussion for brewers and those interested in brewing. See link for more details. No traditional Twelfth Night celebration would be complete without dancing! A dance lesson in the afternoon will be followed by an evening dance masque - masks are encouraged (enter yours in the A&S competition!) and everyone is invited to stay and dance or just enjoy the music and company.
Merchants: Merchants are welcome - there is no merchant fee but merchants must pre-register and send information about their wares and any requirements. We have limited table space available for merchants in the hall - we will provide tables. If you have specific questions, please contact the autocrat (see below).
Feast: Lord Wolfgang Moennich von Lupin will be preparing a delicious meal; pre-registration for feast is encouraged. A menu will be forthcoming. If you have questions about feast ingredients, please contact the cook (see below). There will able be ample off-board seating provided. The event site is walking distance from a small shopping center with a grocery and cafe, and a short drive from Williamsburg's many restaurants.
Schedule: Set-up will begin at 8am. Troll opens at 10am. The event concludes between 9:30 and 10pm. (anyone on-site will be thanked for volunteering to clean!) and the site must be vacated by 11pm. Watch for a complete schedule soon!
