Our Next Event
Valentine’s Game Day & Regatta
The Barony of Politarchopolis invites the populace of the Barony and the Kingdom to attend our annual Valentines Day event. This year held slightly later in February but with twice the courtly romance to offer!
The day will be filled with games such as a three-legged race, egg and spoon race, croquet and boules. In addition to these games we will be hosting a regatta. A mail box for special delivery of anonymous messages of love, friendship and appreciation will be available for the populace to use. For those who attend the event, these messages will be guaranteed to be delivered by Cupid before the end of the day!
We challenge the populace, visiting Baronies, Household and Colleges of Lochac to construct a boat, manned by up to three people to be captained and sailed (on land) in a race. The winning crew will receive a (mysterious) prize.
A picnic lunch will be served and cooked by House of Castle Rookwell.

Rowany Festival is the largest event in the Kingdom of Lochac, and is hosted by the Barony of Rowany every year during the Easter break.
Rowany Festival has a number of “traditional” activities that draw people from near and far.
We have plenty of Arts and Science classes and activities running right through Festival so there is plenty of opportunity to learn more about the many, many beautiful things practised and produced. There are also various merchant stalls surrounding the village green in case you are in the mood to buy. In case that isn’t enough, market day transforms the tavern and surrounding area into a buzzing colourful market bizarre.
It isn’t all fun and games though, oh no! We also get down to some good old fashioned medieval fighting, with martial arts in various disciplines. There are a number of combat tournaments for fencing, archery and “heavy” you can partake in or watch. Depending on how friendly the neighbouring lands are at the time, there may even be a WAR! Who are we kidding, we’ll always find an excuse to have a war. With various scenarios and anywhere up to a few hundred fighters, war day is quite a spectacle to behold and brilliant fun to be a part of! Veteran Knights through to absolute beginners are welcome (although you will need to be authorised to participate in many activities – we take safety VERY seriously). You can always find someone to practice with, learn from or talk to. We may like fighting, but deep down are quite a friendly lot.
We have singing (the Bardic Circle is always a hit), dancing (2 balls are held each festival), various Guilds (such as the Fibre Guild, Brewers, Vintners and Imbibers Guild, and The Worshipful Company of Broderers to name a few) and so much more. Basically, if its medieval/renaissance, you will likely find some kind of activity or event for it at Festival AND will easily find a whole bunch of people to talk with about it
When: 2-7 April 2015
Where: Camp Wombaroo, 162 Black Spring Rd (off Wombeyan Caves Road), High Range NSW
