The 2014 dates for Dence Park A&S are now known.

The venue is booked, the first Dence Park Arts and Sciences day for 2014 is Sunday 9th February.
After lunch there will be the opportunity to meet the new Baronial candidates. Come along and listen to their ideas, ask any questions you have, and find out about the people who would like to be the next Baron and / or Baroness of Rowany.

All 2014 dates for Dence Park are:

Feb 9th
Mar 9th
Apr 13th —> Moved to Apr 6th due to conflict
May 24th (Saturday)
Jun 8th
Jul 13th
Aug 17th
Sep 14th
Oct 12
Nov 9th
Dec 14th

The centre will be open from 9.30 – 4.30, and we will have a break in the middle for a Pot Luck lunch. This would be a great time for anyone who would like to try out some of their period cooking on a receptive audience to bring out some of their creations. Alternatively just bring along something to share, it does not have to be a period dish.

Bring a project you are working on, start a new project or come and learn something new. Or why not bring and play some Board games or outdoor games.

This is a child–friendly event with boffer and games. All persons under the age of 18 years must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Archery practice is target practice with blunts.

Address

The Epping Creative Centre, Dence Park, 26 Stanley Road, Epping

For those needing public transport there are regular trains to Epping Station. Epping Station is 1.1 km from Dence Park so the walk from the Station will take about 10-15 minutes. Or if you would rather buses you can catch the M54 which goes near Epping Station on Beecroft Rd every 20 minutes on weekends and will take you to within 500 meters of the Creative Center if you get off at the Epping Road near Crandon bus stop just two  stops or if you miss that one the next stop will get you to within 800 meters of the Center. For those who want to drive there is loads of parking, some of it is double parking so if you are not staying all day make sure that you know who you are parking in front of it. Most of the parking is not double parking and is not a problem.

A&S Dence Park Timetable (3 Mar 2013)

Hi everyone,

Below it the time table for the Dence Park A&S Day:

Kids Classes
10.00-10.45     – Sewing
11.00-12.00     – Boffer
12.30-1.00       - Lunch
1.00-2.00         – Dance Practise
2.00-3.00         – Archery
3.00-4.00         – Games

We do not expect that each of the kids classes will hold all the kids attention for the entire length of the time that the class is set for. The timing is to give those children who are interested a reasonable length of time to do the things that they want to do. Not all of the kids will engage in all of the activities and some probably won’t engage in any, that is up to the individual children and their parents.

Adult Classes
10.00-11.00     - What to bring/ wear/ see and do at Festival
11.00-12.00     - How to make your camp site look more period
12.30-1.00       - Lunch
2.00-3.00         - Dance Practice
1.00-3.00         - Cloaks
3.00-4.30         - T-tunics

Outside activities
10.00-12.00     - Fencing

I have not scheduled other outside activities other than the Fencing and the kids use of the outside area however fighting and adult additional use of the outside area is encouraged.
