On March 8, 2014 the Shire of Hartshorn-dale invites Artisans of all types to exhibit the fruits of their labors at the return of their very popular Artisans’ Challenge and Display. Exhibitors are especially encouraged to take up one of many challenges that have been issued by a great many admirers of art and science. Each challenger has set their own bar and everyone is encouraged to explore the list of challenges to see where they can shine! A general display will also be had. Attendees can look forward to a full afternoon of sharing their love of arts and sciences with many like-minded folk. All attendees are encouraged to bring tokens to leave with displays that they find especially meritorious.
Their Excellencies of Bhakail and the Shire of Hartshorn-dale invites you to join us for the performance of the Lay of El Cid. This excellent poem extolls the adventures of Ruy Diaz de Bivar, El Cid Campeador, a great warrior and loyal vassal of Castile. Hear of his exile, his adventures in fighting the Moors, and his journey back to be honored by the king to whom he remained loyal.
The performance will be presented in the grand style of the court of Alfonso X, king of Castile 1252-1284.
Above the salt seating has already sold out! Make your reservations soon!
The time to order one of the mementos has passed. However, three lovely tables, fancier versions of the take home tables to be used at the event, that will be raffled off at the event. Tickets for the raffle are $5 each. A picture of one of the donated tables is included here, and the other two will be shown on the event website, link below.
Pre-registration closes November 2.
A lovely day long buffet is planned for the breaks between parts of the performance, prepared by Asa in Svarta. Details are available on the website.
The Shire of Hartshorn-dale (Blue Bell, PA) invites one and all to A Day in the Solar: Saturday, June 8, 2013 1:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M.
Come and enjoy a day in the solar. Work on some embroidery or your hand sewing of garb. An area will also be set up for those doing more modern garb work (sewing machines). We will also have an area set up for those who wish to practice a more period experience; an “enchanted ground” if you will, where no modern equipment (other than what the site has for us in electric lights, etc.) will be in evidence. Another area will be available for guild meetings. Contact the event coordinator (email at the end of this article) to schedule time for your group.
All those folks doing hand work and socializing will need some entertainment, and we hope that musicians, bards, story tellers and entertainers will join us to amuse and be amused. Food is being provided (John Marshall atte Forde is our head cook) but attendees are welcome, nay invited, to bring things they want to share. Desserts will particularly be welcome. There is no site fee, but donations will be gladly accepted to help defray costs (should donations exceed costs, they will be donated to the church that so graciously allows us to use their facilities).
All attendees will be asked to sign in and either show proof of membership or sign the waiver. Since there is no fee, pre-registration is not necessary, but if you know you’re planning to come, a note to the coordinator (email address below) will be appreciated for planning purposes.
Questions about food are encouraged to be directed to the coordinator before the day of the event.
The event is at St. John’s Lutheran Church, 1802 Skippack Pk., Blue Bell, PA 19422 near the intersection of Rt 202 and 73, slightly north of Norristown. See the event announcement on the East Kingdom website for detailed directions.
