The Rowany Festival, over Easter, is the biggest national event for the SCA. It was held at Glenworth Valley near Gosford.
We had a great time this year. The highlight was our Friday Night Feast, where we invited the Rowany Seneschal, the volunteer St John Ambulance people, and a stack of other guests to our campsite.
All of the food was cooked over the campfire: sizzling geese, luscious ducks, meatballs disguised (not so well) as golden apples, our own bread, several vegetable dishes, topped off with a 14th-century cheesecake (pronounced delicious) and a fig and raisin dessert. One visitor said that it was the best feast she’d had in her SCA career, not bad considering the vagaries of campfire cooking!
The goose and duck carcasses were loaded into our biggest cauldron, to make a wonderful soup for the next day — which we kept going for each subsequent day. It was delicious.
We’ve all come back with renewed enthusiasm, with lists of great projects and a commitment to getting some SCA combat happening in Goulburn. If anyone can give us a hand with these, please contact Lady Alys the Seneschal.
Our signature event is “On Ilkla Moor”, a campfire cooking event where we go directly from original medieval recipes.
We’ll have some equestrian activities too.

Here’s our annual horse event. It will be a little more low-key than last year, having had lots of wet weather and an attack of life on the part of some key group members.
The feast will be at Cockatrice Farm (76 Barkers Lane, Yarra, near junction of Hume and Federal Highways). The feast steward is Lady Jocelyn de Holyer, one of the finest cooks in the land. Please join us for an enjoyable day and lovely evening.
Update: We had a fabulous feast — the menu is here.
Sometimes nothing is as it appears.
This is our next event, and we have some fun ideas. The food will be visually unusual (but tasty) and we’re hoping to involve the Lieder Theatre acrobats again.
