Ildhafn Performing Arts Challenge

The Baron and Baroness challenge the populace to create some new entertainment!

The Ildhafn Performing Arts Challenge is to create a new piece of work in a period style that can be performed at an event in Ildhafn next year. The aim is to encourage and support people to create new and wondrous art for the Barony and the enjoyment of the populace.

Entrants are given a year to create a new piece of entertainment that will be performed at an event in Ildhafn in early 2022 (details of the event are yet to be confirmed).  It can be a song, a dance, instrumental music, a choral piece, a story, a play, a puppet show, a poem – anything that can be performed at an event! 

We will run a series of A&S classes over the year on topics that will be of help or interest to people who wish to create a piece.  If there is a particular topic you would like to hear about, please email Arts and Sciences Officer, Lady Griete van Groningen

We will also try to put interested people in touch with others who maybe able to help or guide them - again, please contact the Arts and Sciences Officer if you would like to be put in touch with other people who have knowledge in your area.

Entrants are not limited to one item – we encourage multiple items from anyone who wishes.

Entry is open to anyone who attends the event.

Entries must be performed at the event in Ildhafn in early 2022.

For those who wish it we may be able to assist in finding people to help perform your piece. If you would like us to help with this, please let us know as soon as possible.  We absolutely encourage those who wish to perform their own work to do so.


If you need a topic idea, here are some suggestions:

  • celebrating events or people in Ildhafn or the Crescent Isles
  • love and loss
  • the glories and trials of battle
  • period events or historical figures
