Our Populace Choice Arts and Sciences competition was a great success, with more than a dozen entries displaying the best work of artisans from our Shire and beyond.

A New Site

This year our Tournament moved from its original home at Fancher Davidge Park to our current event site at Circleville Evangelical Presbyterian Church. About 100 participants came to see what our Shire has to offer, from Lord Alasdair Campbell’s delicious dayboard to our enthusiastic bardic circle.
