DON’T HAVE A HOME TO CALL YOUR OWN?
Reenactment Guilds or Troupes that do not have a Guildyard are very welcome to play in the streets and interact with the Public as Street Characters. “Mixed” characters are fine. Please request a Performing Arts application.
A WORD ABOUT WEAPONS & SHARP POINTY THINGS
Guilds wishing to exhibit or give weapons demonstrations may do so only within the confines of their Guildyard. No member of the Public may be inside the Guildyard fence during such activity. Shrewsbury Fight Director may review activities either before or during Faire.
Guildmembers wishing to draw steel for street gigs, stage shows, or other exhibits outside their Guildyard must first obtain approval from the Shrewsbury Fight Director. Auditions, either live or on tape, may be required, and should be obtained well in advance of Faire.
NOTE: Fighters auditioning for the “Pryze Fytes” must be approved by June 1st. For a description of Presentation Combat Standards, please see “The Shrewsbury Combatants Handboke”.
CLEAN AND TIDY
All Faire participants are responsible for keeping their area clear of debris and trash at all times during run of Faire, and to leave their area clean after take down. Place your filled plastic trash bags by the containers for pickup by Faire staff.
INSURANCE FOR BEASTS, BROADSWORDS AND THE PUBLIC
All Living History Reenactment Guilds that have either arms, or animals, or who invite the Public into their area for tours and education, are required to submit evidence of Public Liability Insurance (ACORD) before playing at Shrewsbury. Your insurance company can fax this for you to the Faire at 541 929 7731.
