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.

Winter Feast and weekend event

Come one, come all and join us for our Winter Event!


This year we will be holding it at Schlaepfer Camp in Pukekohe for a convenient commute between the Barony and the Canton.  

With Ample space for camping and limited spaces available for bunking, come for the weekend, stay overnight after the Feast (please see booking details for options) or just come for the day - it is up to you!
