Accessibility Information

New to the SCA or just to 12th Night?

Twelfth Night Celebrates the Coronation from the previous Royalty to the New! This event has Court, which is where awards are presented to participants, meetings for officers of the SCA, and classes and activities!

Pre-registration: This is NOT required for this event. We provide pre-registration to speed up the entry process and allow you to pre-pay electronically. You will still have to check-in at the entrance.

Hotel: An Tir has a number of what we call ‘hotel events’ where holding the event outside would be too miserable due to weather and ground conditions. You are NOT required to stay at the hotel where the event is being held or even stay at a hotel at all!
You can drive over and spend the day(s), find crash space with a friend or local SCA participant, or stay at a near-by hotel or B&B.

Food: The hotel has a restaurant and we may have scored a food truck! Typically, hotels do NOT allow outside food or drink (other than water) to be consumed on premises. This is for legal reasons.
There are a number of restaurants and faster food options near-by and the now regularly delivery options (Door Dash, Uber Eats, Grubhub, etc) are also available in the area.
IF YOU HAVE A MEDICAL NEED for food or non-water based drinks during the day, please contact the Event Crew beforehand or have someone from Check-in Grab an Event Steward. We can make arrangements.

Garb: The SCA encourages an attempt at pre-16th Century Garb. If you do not have Garb or feel that your attempts are not enough, you can borrow some! Gold Key will be available on site to borrow. If you have Questions or Concerns, please contact Lady Elizabeth North at and she will assist you.

What to bring:
*Chairs are provided! If you need additional support or wants to enhance your experience with a bench, rug, pillow etc, please do!
*A mug for water. Hotel events are surprisingly warm and dehydrating even when we aren’t moving very much and we’ve turned the heat off in the Ballroom.
*Comfortable Shoes. There may be some walking, there will definitely be some dancing!
*Food. Light snacks are generally a good idea especially if you are looking to attend multiple activities. Foods that are safe for you to eat if you have medical or allergy reasons.
*A small notebook or note app on your phone. One of the best reasons to attend 12th Night is to meet people who have a shared interest! A small notebook is less intrusive but a phone works in a pinch! Jot down the name of that person and their branch or contact info! That way you can follow up about their neat garb or your interest in learning to smith.
*Something to do! In the SCA it’s frequently referred to as handwork! This can be sewing a hem, finger-loop braiding, felting… Smaller projects that can be done with a chair’s worth of space and are relatively quiet. THIS *IS NOT A REQUIREMENT but you will frequently see people in Court doing something and it’s a nice way to pass the time between cheering 🙂

Classes: Many events in the SCA offer classes! Some classes require a pre-registrtion due to room constraints or supply costs. Some may have a fee for supplies. This information should be available to you PRIOR to the event. Keep an eye on the Kingdom Calendar post or the Facebook group for details.

Accessibility: The hotel has a bank of elevators that go to every floor, the main entrances are all stair free, and there are accessible bathrooms on every floor.
We will have a schedule posted at Gate as well as one that you can scan to keep on a digital device or print at home. A limited number of printed copies will be available. Room specific schedules will be posted outside the doors. Please remember that the schedule is always tentative and subject to change.
Signs will be posted with an activity and a symbol for easier navigation!

Frequently asked questions:
If I get called up in Court, do I need to kneel? Nope! While this is tradition, we also understand physical comfort and limitations.
There is always a cushion and An Tir also uses a fantastic bench so that you can kneel or sit on that and you can even just stand! The Crown will 100% understand and you do NOT need to apologize or explain.
I’m brand new and getting called up as a Newcomer, how do I approach? There will normally be several of you! You can walk up with a group or an escort. If you are solo an escort may magically appear and offer you an arm, you are not required to accept their arm!
Usually people will bow or curtsy at the end of the chairs or approximately 10 feet from the Thrones and then a second, smaller one as they reach their final standing point.

How do I volunteer?! There will be a volunteer sign up sheet at a location still to be determined for the day of. Keep an eye out for updates on the Baronial website, Kingdom Calendar, or Facebook Group for opportunities as we draw closer to the event

I need a quiet space and do not have a hotel room! We have you covered! We have set aside space in quiet area of the hotel for a quiet room. This room will have a variety of options for sitting and is near our staff room is you are in need of additional assistance. If you get turned around, look for signage or go to Gate for assistance.

Lodging Information


***NOTE ON HOTEL ROOMS AT THE BELLEVUE HILTON: The Bellevue Hilton Web-Site devotes a page to ‘Suites’ available at the hotel. These are rooms on the upper floors with an expanded footprint and a larger kitchenette. However, only a few of these were available as part of our hotel room block. These rooms are reserved by Technology Enterprises local to the Bellevue area (Google, Microsoft, etc.) as long-term living quarters occupied by temporary workers. We mention this as several people have contacted the Event Team asking about them for Vigil, Party, Meeting Space. Only a few were available to us (and have already been claimed). Apologies for any confusion incurred or plans disrupted.

When the Bellevue Hilton is sold out, the Bellevue Red Lion Hotel is immediately adjacent to the Hilton:
Address: 11211 Main St, Bellevue, WA 98004
Phone: (425) 455-5240

A listing of other local hotels is located below.

Mistress Etienette is helping to manage the Waiting List and the transfer of rooms to those who need them. We’ll continue working on this through the end of the day Friday, January 5th, 2024. If you have questions, or are still looking for a room, please contact her at events [AT] Please also keep an eye on the Kingdom Facebook Page, Event Facebook Page, and other online locations as others are starting to advertise rooms they have realized they do not need at this time.

Meal Information

There is a restaurant located on the Bellevue Hilton premises. There are also a number of local eateries who delivery. We’ll make a listing of many of them available very soon.

The Bellevue Hilton has a single restaurant on site. As we’ve all experienced from past Twelfth Nights, the following usually applies:
* The Event Schedule is tight. So a large crowd of people is usually rushing the restaurant at approximately the same times. When 400+ people hit a restaurant at the same time, the service invariably slows down considerably!
* There are a large number of restaurants near the hotel. Many wonderful choices within a mile of the Bellevue Hilton; HOWEVER, the weather will be dark, cold, and wet. Walking to these locations will be undesirable. Also, how easy IS IT to round up any group of more than one and get them transported in any timely manner?
Because of these factors, I am encouraging the following:
1.) Pack some food to eat in your rooms when it is most convenient for you. This way you are not reacting to being in starvation mode or from low blood sugar.
2.) Door Dash / Grub Hub / Food Delivery Services are your friends. Acquaint yourself with the food available nearby and plan for delivery.
Remember that Outside Food is not allowed in the meeting spaces of the Bellevue Hilton (including Court, Meeting Rooms, etc.). This is per hotel policy.

Volunteer Information

***HELP WANTED – CART COORDINATOR: The Bellevue Hilton has only a small number of carts on hand to transport equipment, luggage, etc. into the Twelfth Night hotel. We have found someone to take on the task to ensure they are collected, tagged, and returned when the Friday move-in is complete. This person will also coordinate a group of volunteers to assist in cart usage and moving ‘stuff’ from cars into the various rooms and meeting space where the ‘stuff’ is needed. Dennis Schroader Jr. from Blatha An Oir is out volunteer (thank you, Dennis!). Contact information and cart loaning information to be published shortly.

***HELP WANTED – BENCHES FOR COURT: There are times when ceremonies and special moments in Court take a little bit of time to accomplish. Standing in front of the An Tir Thrones is an incredibly awesome experience, but it can be exhausting. Or detrimental especially to those with mobility issues. We would like to collect a number of medieval (Norse style? Or other similar?) benches that could be strategically arranged in the Court Room to be available as needed during Court activities and proceedings. If you can help in this regard, please contact the Twelfth Night Event Stewards, starting with Arontius at <>. Your help in this would be greatly appreciated!

We have an on-site signage coordinator, M’Lady Bianca di Baldasarre Saturnio. She will have the map / plan of site and ensures signs are placed appropriately. We are limited on how we can attach printed pages, but we might also use sandwich boards (as long as they don’t get in the way). She will need some help in hanging and coordinating signs. Please consider this possibility. Contact information to follow shortly.

The After-Hours Social!!

Greetings An Tir! I’d like to invite you to an evening of music, frivolity, and socializing!
When? Saturday night, January 13, from 8pm until 1AM
Where? In the Ballroom at 12th Night!
Her Grace Duchess Dagrun Stjarna has put together an invigorating set list of dances for those who wish to trip-the-light-fantastic period-style! The dancing will be accompanied by live music performed by some of AnTir’s very own fine musicians. Don a mask, as is tradition at 12th night celebrations of the past, and come whirl and jig and be merry.
After the dancing, at 10pm there will be a fashion parade of themed ensembles made specifically for this 12th night, modeled by their fabulous creators, after which there will be time for plenty of selfies, socializing with the BoD members, and a selection of drinks provided by the hotel at a cash bar for our convenience….so no one need pack extra food and beverage for a Saturday night to-do…..we are your one stop destination for all the social frivolity of an old Tudor feast hall when the tables get put away and the music starts playing!
