River Haven September Baronial Luncheon


Saturday 13 September 2014

At River Haven Hall, Wesley Street, Lutwyche.

French Feast

You are invited to Al Fresco Luncheon in the Baronial grounds. Come and taste Medieval delights with us and enjoy the newly arrived Spring weather. So throw off the woollen garb of winter, bring out your hats and let’s have fun. Bring your banners and add them to the grounds so we can have a sea of colour to make our River Haven Hippocampus feel right at home.

Watch the Heavies and Rapier fighters show their skills. Come along and cheer on our fighters to see who will become our new Baronial Champions. The Arts and Sciences Competition will show the skills of our artisans and of course Market stalls for us to buy gifts for Christmas.

 Our Feastocrat Lady Nesta verch Wyn has a wonderful selection of foods for us to savour.


Official start time  will be 930am but come early to sign in (from 8am) and get your banner in a good spot.  Help us set up, then sit and have a coffee with us.

All tents put up on the parkland next door must be pop up tents and no pegs are to be used to secure them to the ground. This is a Brisbane City Council stipulation, so you will need to bring sand bags etc. Come early and get a good spot to watch the activities of the day.

Just a reminder to you all that Wesley Street, where the Hall is, is very narrow and quite congested. 

 The preferred place to park for the Baronial is in Swinburne Street, which is the next street down and the hall is on the other side of the park. 

 If you must park in Wesley Street, please park ONLY on the same side of the street as the Hall, and please do not park where the intersection with Tobrook Street is. 

 It would be appreciated if you could keep clear the area directly in front of the Hall for the Baron and Baroness of River Haven and St Florian, and for loading and unloading of vehicles.    You can also drop your passengers there and then park.

 This is all part of our “Good Neighbour” policy

 Thank you all for your cooperation.
