Their Excellencies of Lochmere, Baroness Avice Claremond and Baron Gabrell Fairecloughe.

Welcome to the Barony of Lochmere, the Central Maryland chapter of the Kingdom of Atlantia and the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA).

We are an organization dedicated to researching and recreating the history, martial arts, and arts & sciences of Medieval and Renaissance Europe. In the Barony of Lochmere, you can dress, fight, dance, and sing like it’s the Middle Ages, or you can just come on out and learn more about the how and why of medieval history and crafts.

If this is your first time visiting us, check out our New to the SCA page. We look forward to hearing from you!

The next event that the Barony of Lochmere will host is Torquemada’s Trans-Iberian Winter Tour
on January 23, 2016

Enjoy mayhem, merriment, and fun as Lochmere will be surprised by the Spanish Inquisition arriving in January 2016! There will be performances, arts, fun, frivoloty, and feasting. Come and enjoy!

There will be at two competitions and an open display. Competition #1: Embroidered pillow competition, preferably in the Spanish style
Competition #2: Any arts and sciences from 1500s Spain.
Each competition will have a novice winner and an overall winner. There is a rumor of a another competition in the works to be sponsored by an individual in the barony… There will also be a bardic competition. Stay tuned for details.

It is rumored there may be roving inquisitors questioning volunteers among the populace throughout the day. A prize will be given to the best questionee.

As always, the event will include classes (schedule forthcoming once it is finalized) and a glorious feast. Seating for feast is limited to 80 people, so be sure to register early.

The event will be held at Columbian Center, 335 Governor Ritchie Highway, Severna Park, MD 21146-1908
