We invite one and all, young and old to join us for a day of fighting and feasting, arts and sciences, glory and revelry to be remembered! Our event autocrated by the talented Lord Liam MacanTsaoir 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 day, the feast day of Saint Crispin, in 1415 between the English and Welsh army of King Henry V and the French army of King Charles VI.

Did we forget to mention fencing!? Fear not, Along with the Baronial Fencing Champion Tournament, we will have your favorite fencing activities and also a tavern battle, bring your favorite 'non standard' item for parrying. We've seen it all; from a turkey leg to a stuffed dog so use your imagination. What a sad day this would be without archery, the Battle of Agincourt was won by Archers. Along with combat archery, we will have the Baronial Champion Archery competition. There will also be an opportunity to test the skills of Aethelmearc’s Archers against a fierce French Army.
Agincourt will also host the Baronial Thrown Weapons Champion Tournament and the Baronial Youth Fighting Champion, so come and show your prowess with your chosen weapons.
There will be plenty to do for the non fighter too, should you feel like taking it easy from the battle. There will also be an A&S competition with the theme being the Hundred Years War and a special Leather working A&S competition. We are also looking for kind gentles to hold classes throughout the day. We would especially like to see classes on leather working in honor of St. Crispin.
