Event details

The Canton of Basingestoches invites all to join us as we celebrate the new year with our annual Feast of St Sylvester!  We are delighted to host Endewearde’s Baronial Arts and Sciences Championship again this year.  If you are a resident of Endewearde or one of its cantons please come compete to be Their Excellencies’ new A&S Champion!

This year our feast will have multiple courses served at a leisurely pace throughout the afternoon.  In between courses you can enjoy the Tudor-style architecture of the hall, play games near the fireplace, or sample some of the beverages at the Cock and Bull Tavern.  A traditional part of this event has been our Youth Cordial Challenge where youth under 18 submit a non-alcoholic cordial to a panel of judges.  We are holding this challenge again but this year we are adding an 18+ division (more details at our website). 

Also, what would a feast be without music? We invite any musicians that wish to bring their instruments to do so.  There is plenty of space whether you want to settle near the fireplace or roam the feast hall.
