Event Details for 2013

Earleywood Scout Camp: 5th – 7th April

A private society event with fighting and banquet. The event runs from Friday evening until Sunday lunchtime.
We’ll stay in a cozy scout camp. There aren’t any beds, but there are hot showers and several nice side rooms.
In the morning we’ll fight in local woodlands, then after lunch we’ll continue skirmishing in the scout camp, which is pleasantly wooded.

Forest Green: 10th – 12th May

A classic DAS weekend of fighting and feasting, this will be a private society event at the village hall in Forest Green, Surrey. We’ll fight on historic Leith Hill, and later gather for a fine banquet.

Chiltern Open Air Museum: 28th – 30th June

A DAS training weekend, chillout at Chiltern. We’ll be using Arborfield Barn during the day and the roundhouse in the evenings. Anybody who wants to do iron age rather than dark age can use the roundhouse in the day. Cost to be confirmed.
Activities can include: living history and crafts all day, combat training and display practice, general chilling out and enjoying the site, fighting in the woods after hours, partying in the roundhouse. There will be camping space, or we can sleep in the buildings.
No vehicle movements are allowed on site from 9.45 to 5.30 (i.e. during opening hours) – if you want to leave early you need to have your car off site in advance.

Ingibjorg is the contact for now but will not be in charge of the event.

Murton Park Museum of Farming: 23rd – 26th August

Join DAS for a three-day event at the Danelaw Viking village, set in the Yorkshire Museum of Farming, Murton Park, Murton, York. The site will be open to the public so we must maintain authenticity during the days but the weekend is for us to relax and enjoy ourselves.
Accomodation will be in wooden huts/halls. Bring crafts and games. Cost to be confirmed.
