Greetings!

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.

St Sebastians

Come and join us as we celebrate our 10th anniversary of our annual archery fest held at Braythwayte Manor in Rotorua!

This is a family friendly weekend camp with all sorts of fun things happening; A&S classes, archery games, the annual foot-the-ball contest between Piddlington and Oddlington, easter bunny hunt, music, camp fire, people hitting each other, another of Ed's crazy background games involving all the usual devious shenanigans and challenges (with a beautiful crossbow and set of bolts as the prize!), and then there is St Sebastian's archery contest to decide the Baronial Archery Champion (who will receive a longbow as their prize!) ...and our King  and Queen will be gracing us with Their prescence!

Take me to the booking form!
