Chaucer's Tavern

Come ye, one and all, to the Tavern of Chaucer, wherein we shall stand you food and drink until you will fit no more, and show you all the fat partridges and bream and pike you might dream of. And games, and perhaps, if we are good, the words of that great Chaucer read by a duke. Now open for booking.

Cruinniú

Fighters and dancers ahoy! Following last year’s successful introduction of the new fighting event in the Kingdom’s Calendar, Dun In Mara once more invites you to a weekend of the arts of war and the arts of peace, supported by the shire’s usual hearty hospitality.

First fighting practice of 2019

14 Jan 2019

Dun In Mara’s first armoured combat practice today was attended by six hardy, devoted souls, five of whom reported various levels of seasonal illness. Hence there was no actual armour, and more slightly glazed expressions than normally. There were drills designed to work on creating openings and making use of those, as well as drills to practice flow, and as a a counter, minimal blocking. Lots of basic slow work, too. We finished early due to the overall lack of mental and physical resources, but are looking forward to coming weeks of hopefully better health! Do come along and join us.
