Fields of Gold is a weekend of tournaments and feasts in the high gothic style in honour of the Crown who will be in attendance. There will be tournaments in armoured combat, rapier and archery skill at arms over the weekend between Friday & Sunday as well as a variety of classes in both martial activity and the arts & sciences. The weekend will be themed around the tale of the Swan Knight and involve quests, games and theatrical display.
We hope to again offer Equestrian Activities for the delight of all.
Show your prowess in as many disciplines as you can for the chance to win the title of Champion d’Or.
Apart from the spectacle of the tournament there will also be a chance for the magnificent artisans of the Kingdom to showcase their fine works with a competition simply themed ‘Something Gold’. As it sounds, the entry simply needs to have an element of something ‘gold’. That is it. So it could be golden ale, gold embroidery, illumination etc. Be imaginative as you wish. Documentation is encouraged. Other competitions will be announced in the lead up to the event.
To expand our skills during this time of peace, there will be classes running throughout the weekend.
The weekend is fully catered from Friday dinner to Sunday lunch. The Feast of the Golden Gryphon will run again on Saturday night, however this will be restricted to 80 people and the Bold Gryphon Tavern will also offer fare that night for those that choose it or miss out on the Feast (it’s the same delicious food, just a little less formal).
Join Their Majesties, Their Excellencies and the great and good of Lochac once more upon the Fields of Gold!
