St Catherine's 2012
St Catherine's Faire was as full as ever this year, with a visit from Their Majesties, Henri and Beatrice, lots of visitors from out of town and from other re-enactment groups, two tournaments, a splendid feast, many A&S classes, a ball, singing, a vigil and a laurel ceremony, late-night campfires and of course a great deal of good company.
The weather was kind to us: a little windy on Friday, and ever so slightly damp on Sunday, but perfect for most of the event.
Bookings for food and accommodation for St Catherine's have closed, as we'll be using every chair and table in the site.
To everyone who booked early: thank you! To everyone who missed out: I'm sorry!
Every year, Ildhafn selects a Baronial Fencing Champion, by holding a tournament. This year's tournament will be held as part of St Catherine's Faire, on Saturday morning from 10am.
As announced at St John's, there is to be an Arts and Sciences competition judged at this coming St Catherine's Faire. To enter you must produce a small embroidered item in any style of embroidery that you so choose, entirely constructed between St John's and St Catherine's. The item must be either a gift for another member of the populace, or a contribution to Their Excellencies store of largesse, to be given to a deserving person at a later date.
Welcome to St Catherine's Faire - a weekend of medieval arts, combat, feasting and revelry, in the presence of Their Majesties, Henri and Beatrice, King and Queen of Lochac.
NOTE: bookings for food and accommodation have now closed, as we're using every chair and table in the site. If you missed out you are still most welcome to day-trip to attend tourneys, classes, court and the ball.
