PLEASE NOTE: THIS CALENDAR IS NO LONGER BEING UPDATED!
Come one, come all, to Seagirt's Gentle Arts event!
2018 is the 20th anniversary of when Seagirt became a Barony,
so we're going to celebrate all year long!
As the first event in the year, Gentle Arts is following the theme of 'Anniversaries' -
Seagirt shares an anniversary year with so many other momentous events in the SCA period, and we'd like to celebrate as many of them as possible!
For example, 2018 will be the 790th anniversary of the Sixth Crusade. It is also the 500th anniversary of the Dancing Plague of 1518.
Or, if academics is more your thing, 2018 is the 570th anniversary of the Vatican Library or the 850th anniversary of the first classes at Oxford!
There will be something for everyone!
Come watch our gentles compete for the Baronial Arts and Sciences championship, or take part in one of the many classes that will be available.
