To say I'm excited would be a huge understatement.  
I've just booked tickets to attend the Abbey Medieval Festival next month. Never been to anything like this before and from all accounts it looks like a lot of fun. There's also a museum - how have I lived here in Qld for seven years and not known about this?

Of course the burning question is whether you're going to dress up for it. :D

If I already owned something suitable, then yes, I would! *g* But I'm not going out to buy something just for one day's wear.

Which day are you going? I'll be doing a flying visit for ALHF reasons on the tournament weekend, arriving lateish Friday, going to a meeting and wandering around a bit on the Saturday & heading back to Sydney that arvo.

Bugger - I'm going on the Sunday due to my fellow attendee having commitments on the Saturday. What does ALHF stand for? Something to do with historical re-enactments?

Ohhh... Michael Gothard *sniff*

ALHF = Australasian Living History Federation. I did a large chunk of the 'establishing' business back in 2002 (pre-Pros), then got burned-out & distracted by other things *g* so left the committee a couple of years ago. But I'm back on for a few months, in a casual vacancy, & we've got a committee meeting happening that weekend. Unfortunately my flights are being booked by someone else, so I'm locked in!

It seems to be universal, this walking-away from something to which one has dedicated a heap of time, only to get sucked back in later!
Yeah, Michael Gothard would have been 72 last weekend. :`(
