Buckston Birthday Bash
November 9, 2019
Canton of Buckston-on-Eno

Welcome to the Labyrinth 'Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered, I have fought my way here to the castle beyond the Goblin City to take back the child you have stolen. For my will is as strong as yours, and my kingdom is as great. You have no power over me' - Sarah, The Labyrinth

A day of adventures await this year at our annual Buckston Birthday Bash. Everyone will have an opportunity to join in the quest to make it through the labyrinth with all it's mysteries and challenges. The goal? Well...to have fun of course! Activities are planned for newcomers, fighters, families, one and all.

Fighting: Heavy, Rapier, Thrown Weapons, Archery - there will be fun twists to this year's martial activities to tie in with our theme

Arts & Sciences:

  • Mask Competition - Let your inner artist shine and create a masquerade mask for our A&S competition! All masks will be judged by the populace and returned in time for the evening’s masquerade ball. We can’t wait to see what you come up with! The fine print: this competition is inspired by the ball in the movie Labyrinth. You may enter a mask made in any media, any style. The mask does NOT need to be period specific, and does NOT need to look like it came from the movie. Documentation is accepted and happily displayed, but NOT necessary. Have fun!
  • Poetry Competition - This year we have two poetry competitions. Both can be written in advance, and will be performed by the poet (or a proxy if necessary) the day of the competition. There will be a panel of judges planted in the audience to determine the winner of each competition. Refer to the rules on our website

Feast: A grand Goblin Market will be presenting scrumptious treats throughout the day - morning, afternoon and evening. Stay tuned for a full menu with descriptions and ingredient lists.
