Activities

Traditionally, we have heavy fighting, rapier, archery, dance and, on occasion, thrown weapons. If you would like to help with any of these activities, please contact the autocrat! We will add information here as plans solidify.

Competitions

We have several competitions this year – please check out the competition page for details.

Bluefeather Tea and affinity space
(2:00-4:00)

Join us for a fabulous queer tea party to celebrate all the colours of the rainbow.  There will be a Gong Fu Cha demonstration by Father Ælfric Ecgeling, and dainties aplenty begging you to eat them.  No matter which letters in the alphabet soup represent you, you are welcome to come enjoy our safe space—we’re all mad here, and wouldn’t have it any other way.  High tea commences at 2PM Gay Standard Time and goes until 4PM (so you can be fashionably late to this very important date, if that is more your speed—we don’t judge here). 

Flamingo Croquet

“The chief difficulty Alice found at first was in managing her flamingo…”

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

Try your hand at managing flamingos and hedgehogs while playing flamingo croquet. Happily (for the animals, if not the players) our set is not apt to give you quizzical looks or wander off the croquet court!

Special thanks to Baroness Mor the Merry for providing this activity.

Through the Looking Glass

Step into our memory-making prop tent, where good gentles can pose with unbirthday-like mom wraths and borogroves and preserve their likenesses with those out-of-time likeness takers (we think they call them cameras).

Paint the Roses Red!

“A large rose-tree stood near the entrance of the garden: the roses growing on it were white, but there were three gardeners at it, busily painting them red. Alice thought this a very curious thing, and she went nearer to watch them…”

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

Don’t let the red queen see the white rose tree!  Help us paint the roses red (or whatever color you desire – just not white!

Playing Cards and Tabletop Games

Lewis Caroll aka Charles Lutwidge Dodgson loved games, especially backgammon, chess, math and word puzzles, ciphers, and card tricks. Try your hand at the medieval counterparts to his favorite games.
