[AET] Agincourt

We invite one and all to join us for our third annual celebration of the feast of Saint Crispin! Our event is themed on the battle of Agincourt that was fought in northern France as part of the Hundred Years' War. The battle was fought on a rainy Saint Crispin’s Day, in 1415 between the English and Welsh army of King Henry V and the French army of King Charles VI.

The many fights to be had throughout the day will sate Fighter and Fencers alike. For the fencers, your day will begin with a melee on an hourglass shaped field; you will later fight the Tavern Brawl as well as a Fencing Tourney. For the Heavy Fighters, you have many battles ahead of you, all with combat archery. The Heavy Tavern Brawl will take place in the afternoon, hand weapons only please.

What a sad day this would be without archery, Archers won the Battle of Agincourt. Along with combat archery, we will hold an Archery Tournament and a Youth Archery Tournament. There will also be an opportunity to test the skills of Aethelmearc’s Archers against a fierce French Army.

There will be plenty to do for the non-fighter as well. There will be an A&S competition with the theme being Leather working. We are also looking for kind gentles to hold classes throughout the day on topics relevant to the period. We would especially like to see classes on leather working in honor of St. Crispin.

An amazing lunch and feast is being prepared as well by the very talented Odriana vander Brugghe, Odriana will be cooking a feast of 14th Century English cuisine. During feast we will have a Dueling Bards Competition, to entertain the crowd and all honored guests. Garb of the period is requested and will make the atmosphere more authentic, but of course not required.

This grand event is to be held at the Dorseyville Volunteer Fire Department Social Hall, 100 Charles Street Dorseyville, PA 15238. The site opens at 9am and closes at 10pm. No pets inside the building except service animals. The site is wet, period containers please. We invite all to bring banners of their Family and Households to decorate the walls of the feast hall.
