On the Sunday Renaissance Rumble will host a massive melee, possibly the largest in the UK (though we’d love to see whether anyone can break out record).

Fencers will be split into two teams and will fence using synthetic weapons such as longswords, side swords, messers and arming swords with a variety of off hand weapons or protective kit.

We already have plans for future events to allow the use of armour, polearms and other game changing weapons, but for now, simply one or two handed weapons (no montantes please) in a fight to see which teams is left standing.

We will also be holding a last fencer standing melee. You can ally with your friends, but beware, they may just stab you in the back!
