Guild of St. Longinus

Frohes neues Jahr an alle!

We would like to thank all of you for visiting us the last two seasons at the New York Renaissance Faire! We hope to see you all again this year!

Our Fähnlein and Tross have been incredibly busy with non-military things since we left England in October, but we will be reconvening in a couple weeks to prepare for this year’s guild activities. We tried some new things last year. We hope to improve on those things, as well as learn new skills and activities to show and discuss with all of you. Our favorite new activity was the “Kinder Fähnlein”. In that, we trained a group of children pike drills and how to march in formation, then gave them personal audience with Queen Elizabeth to demonstrate their military prowess. After seeing the pride and joy in those children’s faces as they yelled “NOCH WEITER!”, we knew this has to become a regular thing!

So… After we meet in a couple weeks, check back here to see updates on what we have in store for you this year. Better yet, please join our mailing list down there, on the right side of the screen! Follow our FaceBook Page for quicker updates, plus posts about German food and history. And, as always, we are looking for new members of our family. If you think you have what it takes to live the mercenary lifestyle, write to us for more info on how to JOIN US!
