My Lords, Ladies, Good Gentles all,
Welcome to the Canton of Stegby!
Covering the areas of Warwick, Stanthorpe and the Southern Darling Downs in South East Queensland
We are part of the Kingdom of Lochac which covers Australia and New Zealand (Big Island and Crescent Isles respectively). We are part of the SCA Ltd.
The SCA Ltd, or Society for Creative Anachronism Limited, is a non-profit, educational organization whose aims include re-creating the arts and crafts of the pre-17th century world.
We get together, learn many skills and crafts including cooking, fighting, and everything in-between, and we have a lot of fun doing it. We are as much a recreation groups as a re-creation group – that is we do what we do as much for fun as for authenticity. We have many members whose aim is to be as authentic as possible in as many ways as possible. We also have just as many members who are content to be as authentic as required to give a medieval feel to things, while having a good a time as possible. The choice of your goals is up to you.
The only things required are that you make an attempt at period ‘garb’ (‘garb’ means costume), try to avoid the look and feel of the modern world (the terms ‘mundane’ or ‘mundanity’ refers generally to the modern world), and that you be polite and kind to others while you are doing it. If you want to be a totally authentic person, fine. If you want to be a barely authentic party animal, fine as well.
We have a Dream, the Dream of an ideal medieval world where the arts of war are practiced without death or injury, and the creative crafts of years gone are taught freely to all. A world of pageantry, where all can aspire to true nobility.
Welcome to the Current Middle Ages. It is a journey full of learning and entertainment, and we hope to see you at a tourney, feast or Arts and Sciences evening soon.
What’s on at the moment?
We meet monthly alternating between Warwick and Stanthorpe.
Meetings are held at the Little Theatre in Stanthorpe and at St. Mark’s Anglican Church Hall in Warwick.
At these regular meetings, we get together to learn Arts and Sciences (A&S) (Crafts), Archery, Rapier and/or Heavy Combat Training.
We hold our business meetings which are usually on the second Wednesday Evening of each month (followed by A&S if there is time).
For more details about Stegby activities please contact the Seneschal (mundanely, the group President) or the Hospitaller (Mundanely the group newcomers/garb person))
