Greetings, and welcome!

Welcome to the Shire of Darton, the Wellington, New Zealand branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA), a world-wide society that recreates the better parts of life in pre-17th Century Europe.


Welcome all!

There's been a recent news article about a group who promote European culture (including doing medieval reeactments) and the possibility that they were promoting white supremacy. 
Although the group condemned such behaviour, it's best to make our position on any similar behaviour clear.


Darton Anniversary 2019

It is late winter, cold and dark, and 20 years ago a group of like-minded people gathered together to create our Shire.

Come and join the Shire of Darton on the weekend commencing Friday 23 August 2019 to Sunday 25 August 2019 in celebrating the anniversary of its inception.  A family friendly event, full of cheer and good will.  We will celebrate the end of winter, the past two decades and the start of a new one, while donning our warmest woollens and furs.


Wairarapa Hamlet

Hear ye!  Hear ye! 

The Hamlet of Sherwater is that part of the land mundanely called the Wairarapa region. 

From time to time medieval events are held in this part of our wonderful Shire; and you may seek assistance there, concerning Medieval or Renaissance costume making, or other Medieval or Renaissance arts and crafts.
