Medieval reenactment in Canberra

This is the official website of the Ancient Art Fellowship (AAF), one of Australia's oldest continually running medieval reenactment groups.

 

WHERE
Danelaw's site, "Dunghaven", near Moreton National Park, NSW. The site offers good camping areas, pit and composting toilets and a long fire pit for socialising. Here are directions to get to the site both from Canberra, and from Sydney (maps in PDF format)

WHEN
October long weekend (30th Sep to the 3rd of October). Site open for arrivals on Friday night and we all leave Monday afternoon.

FOOD
The event will be catered, with a feast on Saturday and Sunday night. If you have any dietary restrictions please tell us well in advance (see booking form).

PRICE

  

Note: that admission at the gate is subject to space and catering capacity - we can't guarantee that you can get in or that you will be fed!

    FIGHTING

    The site offers very varied terrain including forest, open field and a narrow creek crossing. We will be using AAF standard rules except most fights will be no lower limbs. Javelins are permitted as well. There may be a short tourney if people are interested. Mininum age for combat is 18 or 16 as long as written permission from parent or guardian provided.

    ACTIVITIES
    Over the weekend we will be running various workshops and competitions. If you want to run a workshop at Beorg-wic, contact us and you may get a discount. Details of the workshops will be on our website at a later date. Also we will have an area set up with game boards all weekend. There will be a market on the Sunday morning so can people inform us if they would like to sell stuff at the market.

    OTHER INFORMATION
    There is no water on site so please BYO and take your garbage home. Nearest shops are a long drive, so BYO drinks too. Please build a fireplace for your fire (there are lots of rocks) and don't litter cigarette butts.
