Hi All,

Next weekend in the UK is Tewkesbury Festival and the weekend after is Festival of History and I will take along my Albion collection for a handling session at 6pm on the Saturday evenings.

If you are interested please come along to the Tods Stuff stall - I provide the swords, you provide the beer.

A high price, Sir.

A poorly maintained weapon is likely to belong to an unsafe and careless fighter.

I wish I could be there but there is an ocean and a continent between me and Tewkesbury. Please tell us which Albions will be there, so I can daydream about it.

Tewkesbury - reminds me of Clarence's dream in Shakespeare's Richard III where he conjures up the ghost of Edward, the Prince of Wales -

...Then came wand'ring by
A shadow like an angel, with bright hair
Dabbled in blood, and he shrieked aloud,
'Clarence is come -- false, fleeting, perjured Clarence,
That stabbed me in the field by Tewkesbury:
Seize on him, Furies, take him unto torment!'

It was a sweltering hot day and many people stayed flat on their back s in the shade after the battle but those that did come got to handle 21 assorted swords.

On again next weekend at Kelmarsh

A nice, seriously nice grouping of Albions. Do you have additional pictures of the handling session?

Looks pretty awesome.

Did you end up with any fingerprints on the blades? With this crowd, surely not. Big Grin
