SCAdians King and Queen of Balingup

The Balingup Medieval Festival has new royalty: King Simon and Queen Ally, a romantic duo who are also members of the SCA. The Donnybrook-Bridgeport (Australia) Mail interviewed the couple for a recent article.

Ally and Simon have been involved with the Medieval Festival for several years, and have also been instrumental in the founding of the Shire of Boesenberg in Bunbury. “Simon was the marshal and I was the list keeper for three years,” Ally said. “Simon was into making armour and I got into making costumes – it was something we could do as a family.”
