Boffer Wars (Fight Cast): Militant masters of arms, these Knights of England teach the art of swordplay with an emphasis on the play.

Revelers: The artists formerly known as Villagers, these performers sing songs, dance maypoles, and interact with the audience bringing life to the shire.

House Band: Bringing song to the shire, these masters of mellifluousness accompany jousts, chess matches, dances, and more!

Pub Crawl: What does a band of colorful for-hire mercenaries do when there isn’t any scuffle to be had? They host a pub crawl, of course! Food safe certification will be required for employment.

Fae: Ethereal, Mysterious, and Magical, the Fae of the forest enchant with whimsy and wonder.

Guild of St. Bartholomew (Fight Cast): A globally and historically minded troupe of diverse actor combatants, martial artists, and improvisational performers. Swords, comedy, and history are wielded in equal measure in the featured stage show “The Four Swords”. Experienced in Historical African Martial Arts (HAMA), Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA), and/or Indigenous martial arts preferred.
