Ildhafn at the Pop-up Globe

Auckland's "Pop-up" Globe opened on Thursday night with much fanfare and just a little help from the good people of Ildhafn.  This Globe is a temporary construction replicating the second Globe Theatre in London, and will be venue for a huge programme of Shakespeare plays.  Featuring the costuming of our very own Lady Christine Bess Duvant (Chantelle Gerard), the play for the opening night Gala was Twelfth Night.  An hepe of us were given tickets in return for going along and looking pretty, and pretty we were, hitting the red carpet with a storm of well-tailored silk and velvet. 

A&S time and venue for 2016

A possible plan for A&S meetings in Ildhafn this year: a big monthly gathering plus smaller weekly gatherings

I'd really appreciate as much feedback as possible before this Sunday (the 14th). I know heaps of you have already given lots of feedback (thank you!) but a minute filling this out will make it so much easier to count. Thanks a heap!

Here's the form - have your say in easily-countable form

Capriol + Affetto

A bunch of our dancers -- led by Mistress Katherina -- performing under the name Capriol have teamed up with Auckland-based early music group Affetto to put together a show combining sixteenth century music and dance.  I had the good fortune to see the first performance last night.

Summer Break

We're on holiday for summer.

There are still some things happening, but most of Ildhafn's regular activities take a break for December and January: from St Catherine's Faire until after Canterbury Faire.
