In honour of the recent 400th year anniversary of Shakespeare’s Folio, it would seem that this spring the Barony of Settmour Swamp finds itself nestled in an area that greatly resembles Elizabethan England– and the Vice District no less!  Such is the life of a thespian, it’s all fun and games, until someone mistakes the bear pit for the theatre… That’s right, the 39th Quest for Wit and Wisdom will be a raucous adventure through the literary works and worlds created by Master Shakespeare himself!

Join us for a weekend of fun, fellowship, and, of course, a little theatre!

In addition to the Quest itself, the weekend will feature a variety of activities for our martial community, an A&S competition and Artisans Row, a Bardic Circle, and our first Baronial Brewing Championship!

A Midsummer Night’s Feast:  Revelry and Repast will delight our tastebuds and provide us with an evening’s entertainment.  Feast Menu forthcoming.

More details about Heavy Combat, Fencing, Archery, and Thrown Weapons forthcoming.
