Endwearde's First Baronial Investiture
Saturday, September 28, 2013

10:00 AM - 8:00 PM



The Barony of Endewearde, Star of the East, Ende of the Worlde, the Last Watch Tower, the Land of Spruce, Oak, and Granite, invites all to come and bear witness to the Investiture of our founding Baron and Baroness, Lord Ané du Vey and his Lady Sylvia. Join us for a day of merriment as wise Eastern King and Queen, Gregor and Kiena, having heard the advice of Endewearde’s populace, invest titular heads for the very first time in this land at the very heart of the Kingdom.

So important is this occasion, we are celebrating it with a feast beyond imagination! Under the culinary guidance of Lord Gruffydd Abernethy and his lady, Admiranda Howard, we will be serving up an impressive array of Endewearde’s finest fare, including seafood from our bountiful oceans and game from our vast forests. We are still making specific plans and arrangements for this important day, so many details are not yet available. But, mark the date and plan to attend!

Event Location

Hammond Street Congregational Church
28 High Street
Bangor, ME 04401


FEAST IS NOW SOLD OUT, BUT THERE IS AN ALTERNATIVE PLAN IF YOU AREN'T ON BOARD (9/22/2013): There are many fine restaurants and pubs in downtown Bangor, Maine within easy walking distance of the church event site. Baroness Aneleda Falconbridge is organizing an excursion for those wish to dine elsewhere while feast is being served. Contact Baroness Aneleda Falconbridge by email or speak to her at the event to indicate your interest in the feasting field trip.  If you are interested please fill out the Investiture off-board form at before Wednesday, Sept. 25th.

As is Endewearde’s custom, a satisfying dayboard will be provided for our guests; the dayboard is included in the site fees. Advance feast reservations are required and our seating is limited to 120 seated guests. Reservations must be taken on a first come, first served basis. Please include the names of all the members of your party who will be taking a seat at the feast, regardless of their age. If you wish, pre-registration for the event is also an option. If you wish to pre-register, please include your name, an email address or phone number, membership information, and a list of all those in your party, along with a check or money order for the full payment.

Update (9/07/2013): Seating for the evening feast has sold out. You may, however, contact Lord Gwillim Kynith (see below) and ask to be placed on a waiting list (first-come first-serve) for seats at evening feast in case there are cancellations.

  • Facebook Updates are available on the facebook event page called Endewearde's First Baronial Investiture

  • No open flames, please. We regret that we cannot use open flame for Arts & Sciences classes (such as lampwork). We also cannot use open flame or enclosed flame candles at feast. Please honor this site restriction.

  • Parking: Please plan on parking near the church and walking to the site after you have dropped off any bulky items. There is a small parking lot behind the church but it will be used for heavy list fighting in the afternoon. There is plenty of on-street parking nearby within easy walking distance.  

  • Facilities & Handicap Accessibility: The site is handicap accessible. There are no shower facilities. There are ladies and lords changing rooms.

  • Paperwork Is Required For Guest Minors: If you are bringing Minors (youth under 18 years old) who are not your own children or for whom you do not have legal guardianship then you MUST have the Minor Consent To Participate And Hold Harmless waiver document signed for each child by their parent/legal guardian and brought with you to present at check-in gate. Please note that this form will be kept by our entrance gate staff as part of our SCA event records:

    Any minor not in the company of their parent or legal guardian at any SCA event must have in their possession the following form,
    Medical Authorization for Minors, which has been completed by their parents before the event and witnessed by a Notary Public. The person responsible for the Minor that day should also have a Medical Authorization for Minors form in their care for the duration of the SCA event:
    Please contact the Event Steward, Lord Gwillim Kynith, for additional assistance with questions regarding Guest Minors.

  • Clothing: An attempt at pre-17th century clothing is required to attend any SCA event. If you are new to attending SCA events then you need to know that all SCA event participants wear clothing that is suitable for the SCA period (approximately 600 - 1600). Please contact our Newcomer coordinator, Lord Finan, ahead of time to make arrangements to borrow appropriate clothing (called "garb"). Limited loaner clothing will be available at the event. Endewearde has a simple and comfortable selection of loaner clothing in a wide variety of sizes to help you attend our SCA events. Contact Lord Finan by email at for further assistance.

  • Dayboard: If you haven't attended an event in the SCA with a dayboard (lunch) or an evening feast, then you need to know that you are expected to bring your own sturdy bowl, plate, drinking cup, utensils and napkins. It is recommended you bring a plastic bag to store your dishware after lunch. Please do not use the restroom sinks to rinse off your dishware as food waste may clog the drains.

    One useful tip is to bring a paper plate to place over your sturdier plate; the paper plate is discarded after your meal and you get to pack home a relatively clean plate. Please plan to bring a bowl that makes it easy for you to carry hot soup once served.

If you are new and attending your first few SCA events please click here to refer to the collection of Newcomer Information articles linked from the Endewearde website.

Please contact our Newcomer coordinator for assistance in understanding what to bring for your comfort to an SCA event, what to pack for dayboard and evening feast, and to make arrangements to borrow appropriate clothing (called "garb") for an event. Write to Lord Finan and mention that you would like to learn more about attending your first SCA event. If you need to borrow medieval clothing for this event (such as a simple tunic you can wear over everyday clothing) please let Lord Finan know ahead of time so he can help find a comfortable tunic in your size.

The Endewearde First SCA Event Sponsorship Program is designed to help welcome potential or new SCA members to their first event by defraying some of the cost. Any current paid member of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA), may sponsor one other person allowing that person to receive free admission to their first SCA event held by the Barony of Endewearde. This program requires that the SCA member's sponsored guest never have attended any SCA event before. Its goal is to allow paid members to introduce others to the SCA by accompanying them to an event, while permitting the guest to see what we're all about and what it is that we do without incurring the costs of the event fee and the Non Member Surcharge (NMS).

The following conditions apply:

1). Any paid member of the SCA can sponsor ONE guest and get them into their first SCA event in Endewearde with no fees. Remember, it's one for one. (A single SCAdian member certainly can bring a whole new family as guests, but under the sponsorship program, only one of those guests gets their site fee and NMS waived.)

2). The paid SCA member acting as sponsor must accompany their guest through Troll / Check in Gate.

3). The paid SCA member acting as sponsor must garb their guest (either by making arrangements for Gold Key garb or with their own or someone else's garb).

4). This program does NOT waive separate feast or dayboard fees. It only applies to admission fees.

5). It's up to the SCA member and their guest to verify that this is, in fact, their guest's first SCA event.

The Hammond Street Congregational Church is located in downtown Bangor, Maine at 28 High Street. There is limited parking available in the parking lot directly behind the church and ample street parking within short walking distance to the church.

Take your best route to I-95 Exit 183, US Rt 2/Hammond St. (Northbound turn right off the exit; southbound turn left off the exit). Follow Hammond St for 1.4 miles. The site, a red brick church, will be on your right at the corner of Hammond and High streets.
