As the cold winter has put nature to sleep, Yuletide brings forth the promise of days growing bigger and the grass awakening from its deep slumber. All and all a perfect time to come and rejoice with the Barony-Marche of the Debatable Lands on its celebration of the Twelfth Night! Their Excellencies, Alonzio and Tatyana will hold their Baronial Court and her Excellency will also choose her Bardic Champion. There will be performances from the Debatable Choir, the Debatable Consort and I Genisii, dancing, a pillow fight (which has now become a 12th night tradition!), an A&S display (run by THL Odriana vander Brugghe, email at firstname.lastname@example.org) with a Yule theme, a fencing tournament, children activities, our Silent Auction and much more to be scheduled!
