The shire of Appledore invites one and all to join the
estimable Ladies of the Golden Swan to celebrate scholarship
and persona development during this event.


Golden Swan is a persona development challenge for female
personas.  The purpose of Golden Swan is to foster
knowledge of the lives of women in the Middle Ages and
Renaissance.  A successful Golden Swan has acquired a
level and depth of understanding of what a woman’s life was
like in a given time period that may be unequalled even in
the highest academic circles.


Prospective candidates must enter 12 categories. Eight are
mandatory: Persona Development, Skills & Technologies,
Costuming, Needlework, Calligraphy, Everyday Life,
 Courtesy & Etiquette, and Inspirational Behaviour.
The candidate must also choose 4 of the following catagories:
Games and Pastimes, Bardic, Dance, Survival Skills, Habitat,
Food. All categories are open to anyone who would like to
enter as individual contests.


Golden Swan candidates are expected to remain in persona from
Saturday morning until Court on Sunday, and will be subject
to judging during this time.  All other attendees are
asked to respect the candidates and do their utmost to enable
them to maintain their personas. The best way is to try to
remain in persona yourself when the candidate is near.
