What we do!
The whole Barony of Mordenvale meets at 2pm every Sunday at Charlestown South Primary school for fight training, activities, event planning and gossip. Carpooling can be arranged.
The SCA isn’t just about hitting people. We pride ourselves on the involvement of our members in fields such as cooking, sewing, embroidery, pottery, calligraphy and other off-the-battle field pursuits (and its not just the guys!).
Entertainment and activities range at our events from period music, song and dancing to Arts and Sciences competitions, brewing and more. If there is an aspect of the medieval that interests you then here is an opportunity to explore it!
Looking for a Fight?!?
Calling all the geeks and medievally inclined. If you’ve ever dreamed of wielding a weapon on the battlefield: for honour and glory, wanted to have a go at an opponent on the tourney field with dirty great big sword or can quote any line from Monty Python’s Holy Grail then this is the club for YOU!
Female fighters highly encouraged!
Arr! Bring on the Ballista!
From Axes to Great Swords and Archery to Trebuchets the array of weapons we play with is tantalising. You can take to the field of war in a unit at one of our large camping events where we sometimes field over 150 combatants on the battlefield. Or refine your skills in tournament fighting where chivalry and finesse are the order of the day. We make all of our own armor and are probably safer to play than most ball sports in terms of injuries at the end of the day.
More than just a Club!
The medieval group in Newcastle; known as Mordenvale is a part of the SCA, a world wide organisation that focuses on recreating aspects of European history from the roman period through to the early 1600's. Our members vary from engineers to history students (and teachers), artists, accountants and florists! We are family friendly & all are welcome!
