Celtic Revolt

May 23, 2014 to May 26, 2014

Spokane - Spokane County, WA

Autocrat: Kayte Sondra's Daughter


As the snow melts and the ground thaws our borders are once again in jeopardy. Far off lands have sent word that the Celts are on the move and headed this way. The Celts are revolting and our baron is calling for blood and mayhem in defending our fine barony.

The Barony of Wealdsmere would like to invite one and all to come and enjoy war scenarios, Baroness’ Brine Delicacies Contest, a great archery range, scavenger hunts, classes, Viking prom, A&S competition, siege cooking, filk songs, the choosing of this year’s baronial champions and much, much more.

Wealdsmere is once again proud to accept the hospitality of HL Michael of Lancaster, Sergeant. Come and enjoy his glorious Tower and surrounding perimeter walls for Heavy and Rapier siege enjoyment. We also have the use of the adjacent property belonging to the Department of Natural Resources.

Calling all merchants! Calling all merchants! As spring approaches event season starts. The Barony of Wealdsmere is once again excited to host Celtic Revolt and we are looking for merchants to come and sell their wares. The merchant fee for this event will be an item to use as prizes/largess. If you would like to merchant or have any questions please contact our merchant coordinator Andy Williams at, include merchant in the subject line, or the event steward Kayte Blackwell at 509-496-2585

Bardic champion competition

Heavy Champion tourney

Rapier Champion tourney

Arts and Sciences champion competition

Documentation of your project is required - it doesn't need to be overly fancy, just what your project is based on, how you did your project, and any period information you might have about it.

There will also be a brief oral presentation to the judges about your project. I know not everyone can write - when you get some people talking about their project, they just draw you in and what they tell you about their project is just magical. Also, this will be good practice for anyone interested in working toward Kingdom A&S in the future.

Finally, Dame Juliana has agreed to provide feedback to any contestant who is thinking about competing regionally and at kingdom A&S in the future about what things they can do to improve their projects and competition skills. This is NOT required for anyone.
