The Danescombe Academy

August 15th - 17th, 2014

Danescombe is pleased to announce the return of our Summer Academy and Family Camping Event. 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 our Archery Defender as well. It will be an intense 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.

Once again we have been very fortunate to secure the Rock Creek Rodeo Fair Grounds for this weekend. This site lends itself extremely well to our various activities and provides a private camping facility for our use. The site is beautifully located along side a river. The site offers potable water, wash rooms and showers ($1 for 10 mins) ... rather civilized don't you think.

Site Opens 4PM Friday, August 15th, 2014 for setup.

We invite any and all to attend and participate in an atmosphere of sharing and learning. We are anticipating offering a full spectrum of classes in Armored (Heavy), Rapier, Archery and the Arts & Sciences. Once again we expect to offer a youth program of activities for those participants between 8 and 17 which will be provided free of charge.

    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.

    Danescombe's spring demo, where we showcase the many talents of our shire, and introduce the modern world to the SCA.



    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.
