GroupPhotoWelcome to the Barony of Ildhafn

We are a medieval and renaissance re-creation club, interested in the good parts of pre-1600 history (i.e. we're leaving out the bigotry, sexism, racism and intolerance, not to mention the terrible medical care!).

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 always 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. We have a sister group which covers Hamilton/Waikato (known as the Canton of Cluain). There are also SCA groups elsewhere in New Zealand, and around the world.

Next Stuff Day- March 2nd 2024

Come and do Stuff!


After the awesome get together we had in February, Ildhafn welcomes you to join us for our second ‘Stuff day’ in 2024!


A stuff day is a chance for the group to get together, work on projects, discuss ideas, practice music, get in some combat training and generally do that thing that makes you excited about history!

Chantelle is planning on doing some group singing and will be bringing her flute if anyone is interested in other types of music practice.
