We welcome everyone

We're an open, welcoming and inclusive club - we don't care what your skin colour is or where you're from, what god(s) you believe in (or don't), what gender you are, or like, or wish to dress as. Our interest is in learning about and having fun with the good bits of the Middle Ages and Renaissance (and the "good bits" definitely do not include the intolerance and bigotry that was all too common through history). 

There's been a recent news article about a group at Auckland University who promote European culture through activities such as medieval reenactments. They're not associated with us or the SCA, and while we see they share our enjoyment of reenactment, we also hope that they share our openness to people of all races and beliefs (and all the other differences that make Auckland a wonderfully cosmopolitan city) joining them.

Ildhafn at the Pop-up Globe

Auckland's "Pop-up" Globe opened on Thursday night with much fanfare and just a little help from the good people of Ildhafn.  This Globe is a temporary construction replicating the second Globe Theatre in London, and will be venue for a huge programme of Shakespeare plays.  Featuring the costuming of our very own Lady Christine Bess Duvant (Chantelle Gerard), the play for the opening night Gala was Twelfth Night.  An hepe of us were given tickets in return for going along and looking pretty, and pretty we were, hitting the red carpet with a storm of well-tailored silk and velvet.
