Tis the drear, dull, cold Winters day. It seems Winter shall never end, Spring never arrive and yet...wait...what is that Sound? Why, tis a harp song, perhaps a lark, no...a far distant voice, raised in song. Whatever could possess someone to come out into the cold just to sing?
Listen close, my friend, tis the sound of Bright Hills bards and musicians tuning up for our annual Baronial Birthday gathering. Come, join us as we have some fun indulging in a Feast of Fools day!

And the running of the deer
Well... it's a night event: there's no actual organ; and the only deer will be in the stew. But we'll have a choir if we have to kidnap gentles at random. It's all part of the diversion that will be the Barony of Storvik's Yule Revel.
We will be offering a wide variety of amusements for your delight. Besides the aforementioned kidnappings and caroling, there will be: dancing; various contests; a decidedly bardic-friendly atmosphere; and a general warmth and light to drive the dark away. Arts & Sciences Activities: A space will be made available for those wishing to display their period desserts. There will be a gaming contest, a riddling contest, and a dessert contest (both for period and non-period desserts). Musicians and performers are welcome.

Kingdom Twelfth Night and Yule are over and now you can put all seriousness aside and join us for the silliness of a court held by the King of Fools and the wonders of a "backward feast". Foolishness you say? But of course!
Welcome to Fool's Twelfth Night. Fun and Merriment abound at our festivities. Enter into a realm where the garb is motley (sometimes painfully so), the games and gambling are for fun and prizes, the most foolish soul sits on the throne and dessert, of course is served first (life being short and uncertain) All those attending will vote for the silliest among our ranks. This lucky Fool then reigns as King or Queen of Fools, silly hat and all. There will be a Gluckhaus game running throughout the day. Whoever ends the day with the most baubles (whether hard earned, conned, or begged) will be declared the winner. Other contests and games of fun and merriment include the most foolish hat contest, best use of motley, best foolish subtlety

Come on down to Tear Sea's Shore for a day of fighting, fun and feasting for the annual Feast of St. Andrew. This will be a lovely little event to celebrate the holiday season and what better way then to spend it with friends.
Martial Activities: For the martially inclined, there will be the traditional Great Weapons and Mass weapons tourney. The marshal tells me a bear pit tourney will follow to make sure everyone has enough fighting for their tastes. A Round Robin tourney will tempt the rapier fighters on this glorious day.

The tale of the War of the Wings is told far and wide. Last year, the Barony of the Sacred Stone and the Barony of Windmaster’s Hill did enter into conflict with each other, and lo, the Barony of the Sacred Stone did prevail. This year, Their Excellencies of Black Diamond’s precious daughter covets the wings of the Phoenix for herself. Their armies and allies march to claim them for her. Their Excellencies of Sacred Stone and her allies have vowed to protect the Phoenix at all costs.

There is also plenty of tent space available. Pets are not allowed on site. There is no feast, but the site does sell on-site meals.

Good friends, on this day in the year 1547 in Venice Italy, you are cordially invited to join us for a wedding celebration! The well-to-do family has laid on an amazing day of festivities, highlighted by a feast guaranteed to delight, prepared by His Grace Duke Lucius Aurelius Valharic. Unfortunately, this happy day is destined to be marred by murder(s) most foul!
But this wedding is more than a stage play, and you dear friends are more than celebrants. We are counting on you to answer the age old questions "Whodunit?" and "why?" At the end of the afternoon, each guest will be asked to fill out a sheet of paper describing their interpretation of the mystery, and who the culprit(s) is(are). After evaluating the detectives' work, the murderer(s) will be hauled off in chains to face the King's Justice, and the detective who solved the crime most correctly will win a prize.
