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.

Fencing practice 2020

Greetings all,

I'd like to get some input from anyone interested in attending fencing practice this year about when during the week would suit you. We'll be aiming for a weekly during school term practice as we've done on previous years.

I'm interested in hearing from everyone, whether you've previously come along or not - you're all welcome to attend, and your opinion counts. The form will only take a couple of minutes of your time to fill out, and you can find it here.

Thanks, David (Ildhafn Marshall)
