Night in Navarre

Night in Navarre

April 13, 2019

The Good King Henri of Navarre has had yet another attempt on his life! Thus he is visiting his homeland of Navarre to enjoy a day of fighting and an evening of feasting away from the divisive court in Paris. Baron Cormacc and Baroness Sarra invite all to join them and partake of the famous hospitality, tournaments and celebration of the arts that are the Barony of Lochmere. There will be tournaments and melees to delight the Rapier community, followed by a feast by Sir Xenophon to delight the senses.

Martial Activities

As Marshal in Charge (MiC) Lord Fernfael Kymro has a series of melees and tourneys planned for a challenging day of competition. There will be a Rapier and C&T Blacksword tourney and at least two Melee scenarios. Questions should be addressed to him at jdeano[at]

There will be a thrown weapons target area and competition as well.

Arts & Sciences Activities

There will be two A&S competitions to welcome the Good King Henri back to his homeland.

The Kingdom of Navarre is located in the Basque Region and has rich cultural traditions. The first of the two competitions is to highlight this unique region in any medium of your choice. Documentation is not required but strongly encouraged.

The second of the competitions is focused specifically on the city of Pamplona in the Kingdom of Navarre. The tradition of the Running of the Bulls can be traced back to the 14th century when young men would show off their bravado by jumping in front of bulls while they were being driven to the bullfighting rings. For this competition, competitors must use some aspect of a bull in their project; either as a drawing, or an item created from a bull (leather, horn, etc). Along with this item, the artist must provide some sort of documentation detailing how the bull was incorporated into the art and the historical inspiration for the item created. EZ Documentation is strongly encouraged. 


Lochmart is once again opening its doors.

Do you have gently used SCA-appropriate items that you no longer want or need? Why not sell them at Lochmart at Night in Navarre? We do not charge a consignment fee to sell your stuff.

For those of you who have not had the Lochmart experience, here’s how it works:

Bring your gently used SCA-appropriate items to the site before 11:00 AM on the 13th. Ensure that your items are clean and in good repair. Bring hangars for clothing. Attach a price tag and include the amount you want for the item and your name. Our friendly staff will complete a sales tally sheet for you and ask you if you are willing to accept checks.
