Feast of Venus
Unto the populace of Lochac do I send a missive from the most illustrious Roman Goddess of Love, Venus.
Be it known that Venus, the Goddess of Love herself, invites you all to a celebration of romance and chivalry in the fair gardens of the Barony of Politarchopolis.
You are welcomed to recline by the banks of our fair lake and enjoy a decadent Roman outdoor feast in the twilight.
Guests are welcome to wear their most elegant Roman fashions and be waited upon by the Barony’s most attentive servants, whilst indulging in delicacies described by Apicius and cooling themselves with icy cordials and the nectars of the Bacchus (byo).
The combatants of this land will entertain you with Gladiatorial feats of arms, striving to adorn their consorts with the golden trinkets that reward victory.
Afterwards, the entertainers of this Barony will regale you with Roman style amusements and willing guests are encouraged to contact the steward with their own contributions.
Shade, rugs and cushions will be provided upon which you may recline, however any guests who wish to bring their own are also encouraged to do so.
The goddess wishes to inform you of the victuals that she will provide:
- · Trays of light snacks and sweets (Globuli)
- · Roman Burgers
- · Green beans
- · Chicken with leek
- · Lamb
- · Chickpeas with Cumin
- · Baked dormice

Guests are invited to arrive around Midday on the 18th of February. Gladiatorial inspections will begin at 12.30, and will be carried out on time to ensure that the feats of arms are concluded before the heat of the day.
