Event details
In the blooming season of the year, come join the Barony of Bhakail for an afternoon of mirth and merriment as we celebrate love in all its forms, and debate its finer points!  Baroness Sabine and a panel of wise and virtuous ladies will preside over a Court of Love for the entertainment and delight of the populace.  Bring forth your questions on love's etiquette, your arguments regarding love's proper expressions, your philosophical points about love's nature, and of course your most eloquent complaints of love's injustices -- and bring your favorite poems, songs, and tales of love as well.  All guests are welcome, including those who prefer simply to observe.  Following our labors in Cupid's service, we will take our ease at a delectable French feast offered by Lord John Marshall atte Forde.

The feast is strictly limited to 40 people.  No ingredient substitutions will be available the day of the event (due to the limitations of the site's kitchen); please make sure to send any food-related issues to the head chef in advance (contact information below).
