Winter Day of Fun / Make Stuff - an opportunity to make some winter clothing in preparation for Darton Anniversary.

August

Darton Anniversary - 20 - 22 August

Theme - Roman Saturnalia

The Roman midwinter holiday was the beginnings of modern Christmas. People had time off work, ate lots of food, and it was the one time of year when everyone was supposedly equal. Masters and servants would sit at the same tables and eat the same food. Gifts were given, homes were decorated, and a good time was had by all.

The event will be framed as a Saturnalia. The food will be Roman-themed, and decorations, activities and entertainment will take inspiration from Roman history. It is intended to involve the kids in the event too, by getting them to do the decorations for the hall and have kids' combat and arts and sciences.

There will be a gift registry for those who wish to participate in gift giving
