Overview

The Barony of Ynys Fawr is the Tasmanian branch of a world-wide living history organisation called the Society for Creative Anachronism.  As part of the SCA’s Kingdom of Lochac, Ynys Fawr includes the Canton of Lightwood in the Huon Valley, Eastkirk in the north east, and Leathann Tir in the north west.  It also encompasses the College of St Gildas the Wise, based primarily in the Sandy Bay campus of the University of Tasmania.

The SCA is an international non-profit educational organisation dedicated to the research and recreation of pre-17th-century European history, with a particular focus on its practical applications in arts and sciences, including costuming, cooking, martial arts, dance, calligraphy and illumination, metalwork, archery and music.  Annual membership is inexpensive, but is not required for participation.

The Barony meets regularly for activities focused on medieval and renaissance arts and sciences and martial arts.  It hosts events, usually on weekends, including tournaments, royal courts, feasts, dancing, various classes & workshops, and more.  It has a calendar which is updated regularly.

The Barony has a permanent presence at Kraken Hall, in the Royal Hobart Showground under the old grandstand.

Please take the time to browse this website and learn more, or if you’re the impulsive type feel free to dive right in and come along to something.  This could be the beginning of something big!
