The Barony of Bhakail invites you to join us for the Yule Revel to be held on December 9, 2023 featuring a delicious rolling multicourse day board of food from the four corners of medieval China as we determine our Arts and Science and Brewing Champions.

A full day rolling day board by Lady An Hua will begin early with breakfast offerings of rice and congee.  Four rounds will follow with dishes from the East:  Shanghai at noon, South:  Canton at 1:30, West:  Szechuan at 3pm and North:  Beijing after court.  Schedule tentative and subject to change.  Complete menu to be announced.  Each round will offer gluten free and vegetarian options.  Please contact Lady An Hua with any questions regarding food allergies and dietary restrictions at

There will be no feast. 

Brewing Championship: 
This years theme will be to brew a dry beverage.  An extra point will be given for beverages that are not sweet.  Be creative and have fun.  Documentation is helpful but an ingredient list is required.

Arts and Science Championship: 
Make and present an item specific to your persona or a specific type of person in a time and place if you don’t have a persona.  The more unique or specific to that persona the better.  If it is a new skill you are trying out, let us know, that is even better!

Sock Exchange: 
The annual festive Sock exchange will take place at a place and time to be announced.  tuff a cool pair of socks with gifts (limit of $15) and get a gift pair in exchange!  Homemade or handcrafted gifts are preferred but not required.  Any questions can be forwarded to Lady Motte Nachfalter at
