Your Graces, your Excellencies, Lordings and Gentles of the Authentic SCA List,
first I apologise if this is a breach of List Etiquette.
However, it does seem to me that - if members of this List are primarily interested in enjoying a degree of authenticity at SCA events - then nothing will promote that quite as much as an event held in truly medieval surroundings.
Also, this is the time of year when everyone begins to plan their holidays, - if they haven't done so already.
So, it seems to me that advance notice of such events, in time to arrange holidays to attend [ should that be possible ] might be appreciated by some members of this List - who might not be members of other online groups where the events' details will come to their attention by another
Moderators, if this contravenes List Etiquette, I do apologise.
So, with those points in mind, my Lords and Gentles all,
I commend to your attention two Events at SCA-period historic locations in the UK during the coming year
WINCHESTER PILGRIMAGE 2009.
RAGLAN FFAIR, 2009.
ragonshire in the case of Winchester Pilgrimage,
and Mynedd Gwynn in the case of Raglan Ffair.
The Official Tourist Website for the ancient "Almshouse & Hospital of St Cross" in Winchester [ where the Pilgrimage will be based] can be found at
which includes lovely pictures of the Event location.
The Welsh Shire's website for LAST YEAR'S Raglan Ffair is still active, and can be found at
I commend this to your attention because the "Galleries" subfile has lots of lovely pictures and some video footage of previous Raglan Fairs.
In service to the medieval ream
[ which is why I subcribe to and enjoy THIS List]
Lord Matthew Baker,
Hospitaller for West
