Bardic at Spring Champions 2016

There was a bardic competition at Spring Champions in Dalmeny. Our Myrgan Wood Chatelaine, Amya Lyghtfot, asked that the competition could include poetry, dance, recitation, storytelling, etc. but exclude song and music at this event. The populace was treated to several interesting performances!

Beginning in 2017, Myrgan Wood will host a new annual event "Skald the Hall". The focus of this event will be the Arts and Youth. The next Bardic competition will be held at this event on March 4, 2017.
