Brunch with the Bards

February 21, 2015
Barony of Ponte Alto

We’ll be rolling out the red carpet for performers this year at Brunch with Bards! Join us for performances and a scuola that will help you perfect your best performance technique.

Things will kick off Saturday, February 21 at 10 am with two tracks of classes for adults featuring poetry and performance classes and a children’s track of performance oriented activities. Following morning classes, our talented head cook, Cadwaladr Ap Ieuan, will produce a splendid brunch feast , with performances for your enjoyment . After lunch, there will be two more sessions of classes, before the final performance session and Baronial court.

Our Baron and Baroness will select their Baronial A&S Champion at this event.  Tables will be set up for display; more information will be forthcoming.

Do you have a performance you wish to test on a willing audience? We will have the best audience ever! Five minute performance slots are available on a first come-first serve basis. Please email marydotson[AT]gmail.com to secure a performance reservation.
