Event details

As warmer weather approaches, some may consider going on pilgrimage.  Others contemplate the thawing of the mud.  Please join us on March 28th as we gather to enjoy much that our society has to offer.  There will be tournaments of martial skill; the arts and sciences will be celebrated and demonstrated.  A delicious feast is being planned by Mistress Charis Accipiter using recipes by the Italian chef, Bartolomeo Scappi (c.  1500-1577).

Our site is once again the Greek Orthodox Church, and they have kindly asked that we be respectful of their facility and beliefs.
• There will be absolutely no martial activities of any sort inside the building.
• We have also been asked not to have any open flames in the building.
• The site's main halls have wood “gym” floors; please do not wear footwear that could damage the floor. 
• The site is discretely damp.  While alcohol is permitted, please try to use period containers.
• We have been asked to be mindful of keeping off grassy areas lest they become fitting for the name and theme of this event.

We would like to continue to build a lasting relationship with this site by respecting their wishes.

The site is handicapped accessible.

*Artisans Village*
For those more inclined to the Arts and Sciences, we are very excited to once again host an Artisans Village.  We hope that many of you will be able to come to the hall and not only participate in the village but walk away with a new skill or craft that you would like to pursue.  In past years participants have been able to sample:  Calligraphy and Illumination, Embroidery, Spinning, Weaving, Lampwork, Wire work, Lucet, Period music and much more. 

There will also be a display of arts and sciences (A&S).  Please include a detailed description of your work.  If you have questions about displaying, please contact

Fencing at Mudthaw will see the Annual Heavy Rapier Tournament, the Annual Cut and Thrust Tournament, and melees for all.  The list opens at 10:00 AM with the Tournament at 11:00.  The field closes promptly at 3:30 PM.

As in years past, there will NOT be a dayboard at Mudthaw.  We are hoping to once again offer a savory bake sale going on as a fundraiser but that is still in the planning phase.  Check back here for updates. 

There are some restaurants about a mile and a half down the road from the site. 
Please plan accordingly.
