GroupPhotoWelcome to Ildhafn 

We are a medieval and renaissance re-creation club. 

We hold regular events where we  dress like medieval or renaissance people, feast, dance, sing and participate in tournaments. Between events, most of us practice various arts & crafts, and pursue specialised areas of interest such as weaving, dancing, fencing, armouring, sewing, heraldry, shoe-making, book-binding, calligraphy, illumination, music, brewing & cooking. There are few historic crafts that one of us would not have touched on at some time.

New members are welcome, whether you want to become heavily involved, or just have a go once or twice a year.

This website is mainly about the Auckland branch. The website for the Hamilton/Waikato part of the group (the Canton of Cluain) is here. There are links here to other SCA groups in New Zealand, and around the world.

Regular Sunday meetings cancelled for long weekends

Our usual Sunday meetings and practices are cancelled on Easter weekend and ANZAC day long weekend (Sunday the 20th and 27th of April), as many people have other plans.

We'll be back to the usual schedule in May - check the calendar for details.

No council meeting Easter Sunday

The council meeting scheduled for the 27th of April (Easter Sunday) will be held instead on Sunday the 4th of May.

UPDATE: from May 4th, Council meeting will start half an hour earlier, at 7pm.

The Great Persona Challenge

The Great Persona Challenge has had a few updates.
There will now be a prize for the winner of each category as well as the overall winner... yay!
The scoring system has been modified slightly but the handicap system remains.
When you submit an entry at an event you will receive feedback from one or both judges but no marks will be allocated until the conclusion of the competition at St Sebs 2015. You can either leave your entry with one of the judges or take it away and improve it. Either way, all entries will need to be at St Sebs 2015 for marking.
