What we're about

We are a medieval and renaissance re-creation club, interested in the good parts of pre-1600 history (i.e. we're leaving out intolerance, not to mention the terrible medical care!).

We hold regular events where we dress like medieval or renaissance people, feast, dance, sing and participate in tournaments. Between events, most of us practice various arts & crafts, and pursue specialised areas of interest such as weaving, dancing, fencing, armouring, sewing, heraldry, shoe-making, book-binding, calligraphy, illumination, music, brewing & cooking. There are few historic crafts that one of us would not have touched on at some time.

New members are always welcome, whether you want to become heavily involved, or just have a go once or twice a year.

There's a lot more about us on our website (http://ildhafn.lochac.sca.org), but we'll post event notices here as well!
