Herne the Hunter (Canton of Seashire - Middle Sackville, NS)
November 24th, 2018, 10:00 am - 10:00 pm


Once again the snows threaten the far northern reaches of our country.  Before the passes close with drifts piled high, and the rivers choke with ice, the Hunter returns from the woods.  The Canton of Seashire is pleased to host a celebration of the end of harvest and hunt with a display of arms for our armoured community with the return of the Seashire Champions Tourney for new fighters (details to follow).  A novice Arts and Sciences challenge is also anticipated and we ask all present to prepare your tables with decorations suitable for the season, as there will be a populace prize for the most impressive.  A feast of seasonal items will grace the tables, and we are assured none will leave hungry.

Circa 125AD. Vindolanda, a Roman auxiliary fort lying just south of Hadrian’s Wall in England’s northern lands is a cold and dreary place for the Roman soldiers stationed there to spend a long winter. To ease the pain of the cold months ahead, their commander has instructed Centurion Spurius Genucius Rutilus to organize a Saturnalia celebration with the troops and invite all to join in the festivities! Feasting, gaming, gift-giving and general merriment are in store for those who come to honour Saturn, the Roman god of Harvest and Agriculture. IO! Saturnalia!

Gaming including the ever popular Chariot Races hosted by Centurion Spurius himself!
