Welcome to our Barony!
The Barony of Politarchopolis is a community group in Canberra and the surrounding region devoted to learning medieval skills and enjoying medieval pastimes. We don’t just read about history, we live it!
Fighting, feasting, costuming, crafting, music, dance… if it was done in pre-17th century Europe, we know someone interested in recreating it.
And not just in the ACT! We’re part of a global organisation called the Society for Creative Anachronism (the SCA), and we’re one of over 40 local groups in the Australia/New Zealand chapter: the Kingdom of Lochac.
Want to get involved?
New people are always welcome at our Regular Meetings, so feel free to come along any time and meet some of our members. You can also check out our Upcoming Events to see if we have any costumed events coming up.
To keep in touch with us about ongoing activities, consider joining our Baronial Mailing List, the Kingdom event announcements Mailing List, or Facebook Group. If you want to learn more about us first, you can check out our Facebook Page, explore this website, or contact our Hospitaller (Recruitment Officer) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
