This year we return to the Practicum of old - attend all the classes your heart desires during the day, go out for dinner, then return for a potluck Dessert Revel and dancing, dancing, and more dancing! The site is near to several eating establishments, but for those who wish to stay, there are kitchen facilities available for your offboard dining pleasure. During the day, the Incipient Canton of Harrowgate Heath will run a lunch counter as a canton fundraiser.

Classes will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., including fencing and children’s activities. Lord Artus of the Eastrealm will be teaching Capo Ferro.

NOTICE: Due to personal reasons, our guest lecturer, Mistress Safia, will be unable to attend. Our apologies to those who were looking forward to her visit.
