We welcome everyone

Submitted by William de Cameron on March 2, 2017 - 6:31pm

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

Submitted by Ludwig von Rege... on February 20, 2016 - 5:05pm

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.

A possible plan for A&S meetings in Ildhafn this year: a big monthly gathering plus smaller weekly gatherings

I'd really appreciate as much feedback as possible before this Sunday (the 14th). I know heaps of you have already given lots of feedback (thank you!) but a minute filling this out will make it so much easier to count. Thanks a heap!

Here's the form - have your say in easily-countable form

Capriol + Affetto

Submitted by Ludwig von Rege... on September 6, 2014 - 3:21pm

A bunch of our dancers -- led by Mistress Katherina -- performing under the name Capriol have teamed up with Auckland-based early music group Affetto to put together a show combining sixteenth century music and dance.  I had the good fortune to see the first performance last night.
