We dress in clothes of the middle ages, hold tournaments, feasts and all sorts of revelry. There is plenty to do at our events, singing, dancing, archery, sword combat and more.
We largely make the things we use, cooking, sewing, armouring and anything else we can think of to do or to make. The sharing, both teaching and learning of the different crafts is important to the SCA.
Most importantly for us all, we have a great time doing all these things.
Worldwide the SCA is broken up into 19 Kingdoms, each with its own King and Queen. We are Part of the Kingdom of Lochac made up of Australia and New Zealand. Perth and its surrounding suburbs make up a smaller group called a Barony, in this case the Barony of Aneala. There are groups both North and South of Perth - the Canton of Aachenfeld in the North and the Canton of Abertridwr is in the south. The Canton of Vallon d'Or is in the South West based in the Balingup to Bridgetown Region.
