Event details

As the spring sun warms the land, the birds, the beasts, the babbling brook, and the rustling leaves all lend their song to the music that surrounds us.  We call upon the bards of the East and beyond to come join in the melody of the forest and fields and add their voices to through song, story, and poetry.  The East Kingdom College of Performers, along with the Barony of Buckland Cross invite all to join us for the 2024 East Kingdom College of Performers Challenge Assembly Day outdoors in the verdant fields of Playwicki Park. 

This will be a day of learning, so come and hone your craft, learn a new skill, and expand your knowledge of the performance arts.  And should you wish to share the knowledge you possess of the Bardic arts, we are also looking for teachers who wish to pass on what their have learned to the populace.  Bring your expertise in all things musical, poetical, and performance and help keep the Bardic fires burning bright!

This will be a day of performance.  We will have a space where bards may share their gifts of word and music with those assembled.  A sign-up sheet will be available onsite for performance slots through out the event.

This will be a day of challenges.  We encourage all to submit challenges for the performers to test their Bardic mettle.  Past challenges have included performing a non-European piece, performing a piece you have not presented before, performing a piece from a specific time period, and performing a humorous piece.  Use your imagination!  We ask that should you submit a challenge to the performers, that you always provide a token that will be given to those who accept your challenge.
