This Annual event cycles between Innilgard, Krae Glas and Ynys Fawr. This year it is on the 3rd to 6th of October in Ynys Fawr (Tasmania).
Baroness Ingerith writes:
Now that you are back from Festival, Suth Moot or just getting over a surfeit of chocolate it is time to start thinking about the next big event on your calendar this year.
Great Southern Gathering VI is being held this year in the fair Barony of Ynys Fawr from Friday October 3rd to Monday October 6th.
I am coordinating the A&S schedule this year and Don Everard Sefar is coordinating the combat streams. We can be reached at:
Ingerith - firstname.lastname@example.org
Everard - email@example.com
So this is a call for all of you A&S exponents to consider teaching a class at GSG. Think you have nothing to offer? Think again. Have you recently overcome an A&S project that you thought you could never achieve? Have you looked at a painting and worked out how a garment was sewn or footwear made or anything else for that matter? Do you know how to do research? Then you have something to offer all of us who have not.
In particular Ynys Fawr offered an entertainment stream back in 2011 and this is being planned for again by popular demand.
What I need from you is the following information:
Your name (SCA)
Your class subject
Is there a cost for materials?
Level of teaching: Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced How long do you want for you class: 30 min, 1 hour, 2 hours, all morning, all day?
Do you prefer morning or afternoon, Saturday or Sunday? A&S classes can run in opposition to the traditional Sunday tourneys and there can be many streams.
So go to it. If you need anything clarified please let me know.

Where All Hallows Break Loose
A masked evening to entertain and be entertained.
All Hallows Day is nigh and as our thoughts turn to our great ancestors you are all invited to a supper. There we shall don masks, memento mori and share entertainments such as stories and songs, music and poetry recitals and dancing. Bring or join friends in games on tables and about the room where you can play your best tricks while sharing favourite treats from our kitchens.
Those wishing to perform any piece (music, songs, poetry or story telling) or any games played off the table are enthusiastically encouraged to do so and are asked to contact the steward in advance to ensure space and time during the event are made available for you.
The two Arts and Sciences competitions are for the best masks and best performance of a period piece.
