Danescombe is proud to host Tir Righ's A&S and Bardic Championship competitions for a second year in a row. Celebrate the myriad of talents of your Principality with us!
The Danescombe Academy
Spring or Fall
Every year, Danescombe hosts a weekend of University of Tir Righ workshops. Join us in sharing our knowledge of the Middle Ages and Renaissance.
The Academy is also the venue where we choose our Bardic Defender, and this year we'll choose our first Archery Defender as well. It will be an iintense day of classes, archery, and wonderful bardic entertainment: help the Shire choose who will sing the praises of Danescombe throughout the Principality for the following year.
Medieval Spring Faire

Homecoming is a weekend camping event that often takes place in August. In recent years, the Shire has opted to host a Principality event in its stead, but we look forward to its return in future, less busy, years.
Machiavelli is an event dedicated to all the decadence and intrigue of the Renaissance. Scheme to have your candidate elected Doge, enjoy a sumptuous banquet, and revel with the rest of the Shire as we celebrate together.
This event often hosts the shire's Arts and Sciences championship, so keep an eye on the event copy to see what this year's theme will be. .
Tournament of the Roses
The Tournament of Roses is an event that celebrates the fighter's Inspiration, and is where the Shire's Combat Champions are chosen each year. The day is filled with the clash of swords; both rapier and armoured matches are held, and the populace gathers afterwards to herald the winners, and the inspirations who guided them to their victories.
