Date and Time: 
Saturday, November 28, 2015 - 10:00 to 17:00

Come one, come all to the St Catherine's Baronial Rapier Champion picnic! 

This shall be an in-garb fantastic day in the park with food, games and the annual Rapier tournament to decide the next Rapier Champion of Ildhafn.



Games such as village football, pin the tail on the Seneschal, and egg and spoon races shall keep you and yours entertained enough to create an appetite! All in time for the BYO picnic to share with each other before we cheer on those brave enough to test their skills for the honour of being the next Baronial Rapier Champion! 

Even if you are not participating in the Rapier Tounament, there will be plenty to do and enjoy! So bring a blanket and get prepared for a fun-filled Medieval day in the Park!
