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.

Ildhafn Summer Event 2019 - The Moors in Spain

The Ildhafn Summer Event - The Moors in Spain - our annual camping event.

Bonfires, dancing, fencing, music, archery - what more could make a wonderful weekend? 

It will be a fully-catered event, with accommodation, from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon.

The majority of the "usual" activities will happen: fencing, archery, armoured combat, maybe Arts and Sciences classes. Saturday evening there will be a  sumptuous feast prepared by Lady Isabell to be followed by dancing and merriment.
