Æthelmearc A&S Faire 2017

On May 6th, the Shire of Nithgaard will host the second Æthelmearc Arts & Sciences Faire. This will be a day to celebrate the artisans of Sylvan Æthelmearc. We will have room for all who choose to do so to display their works.

The A&S Faire webspage can be found at <>

We will also be running the second annual Queen’s Prize Tourney, for those who hold a Grant of Arms level award or lower in the Arts & Sciences. The tourney, at which there is no winner and which has no scores, those who enter will receive advice from members of the Order of Laurel and the Order of the Fleur. It is our hope that the Queen’s Prize Tourney will give these artisans the opportunity to both learn and teach, and will give the Kingdom an opportunity to see their work. Each entrant is required to be sponsored by a member of the Laurel or the Fleur. Each entrant is required to be present at the event. Each sponsor is asked to provide a small thank you gift to each of the entrants he or she sponsors.

We will need advisors (previously called “judges”) for the QPT. Advisors must be Fleurs or Laurels and are expected to spend the better part of the day in face-to-face advising of the entrants. You can sign up to be awn advisor at the A&S Faire website.

For those of a more martial inclination, there will be outside areas available for fighting and fencing during the day.

On this page, you will find links to the following things:

1. the event announcement
2. an FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) sheet concerning the event and Queen’s Prize Tourney
3. registration forms for Entrants and Sponsors in the Queen’s Prize Tourney and also for Advisors
4. a form for Entrants seeking Sponsors to sponsor them
5. a form for Sponsors seeking Entrants to sponsor

We hope to see many of you at the A&S Faire!

In service,

Fridrikr & Orianna, Kingdom Ministers of Arts & Sciences

This is Zion Episcopal Church in Palmyra, NY. It was built in 1872 and is on the National Historic Buildings Registry. It is the site we are proposing for the Coronation of Timothy and Gabrielle, on April 22, 2017.

The Fellowship Hall will seat 100 comfortably for the feast, 125 in a pinch. The lounge will seat 50 more for overflow. The sanctuary and adjoining chapel are the strongest points of the site. We have permission to use both. We also have permission to have some fighting and fencing on the front and side lawn, weather permitting.

I cannot like this post enough. It sounds like a wonderful day working on a glorious project.

Reports are due by or before June 1st.

A read-through of Njals Saga. Here is your opportunity to experience "dramatic story-telling," to see if YOU want to be part of the ground-breaking production of Njals Saga in October 2017. Lunch and dinner will be provided, as will crash space for those coming from out-of-town.

Please let us know if you can attend this Njal Saga Read-Through at Fridriksstadir.
