City Social Tonight & Summer Updates

Hello and welcome to those who are new to the Bailiwick of Ivyeinrust, a sub-chapter of the Barony of Bhakail in the East Kingdom of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA)!

For those that may have encountered our group recently, please use our contact form to be contacted by our newcomer liaison. Join our email list by clicking here.

Please consider visiting for a great overview of what the SCA is about.

The East Kingdom also has a page for newcomers, located here.

The Bailiwick hosts a monthly City Social at West Lofts at 220 S. 47th Street in Philadelphia. We will be there from 6pm-8pm tonight, snacks provided! Please contact the Seneschal (Chapter President) or see the Calendar for more information.

The Bailiwick held a meeting in June, a very informal meeting in July, and a rather quick meeting earlier this month (August). A synopsis of those meetings, as well as an agenda for the upcoming September Bailiwick Business Meeting on Monday, September 10th are forthcoming.

The Bailiwick Calendar has also been replaced – please add the new calendar if you have not already.

Ivyeinrust had a successful day at the UPenn Fall Student Activities Fair yesterday! We engaged with many undergraduate students at Penn, and several have signed up for the email list, and lots left with flyers compiled, designed, & printed by Livia.

Many thanks to Livia, Bruni, Michah, and Maryna for coming out to the demo! Heat, humidity, and mosquitos were not enough to thwart our efforts to spread news of the SCA on Penn’s campus, and I am very thankful for the support of the Officers of the Bailiwick for helping to meet one of the major goals we set for the year. Special thanks to Livia who did the lion’s share of work in preparing everything and being an out-going spokesperson for the SCA in the throngs of new Penn students.

UPenn Student Activities Fair Demo

Hello everyone,

Today we will be at Table #249 at Penn’s Student Activities Fair from 5pm-8pm. Even if you can only join for a short while, please come!

We are located on Woodland Walk between Spruce & Walnut Sts.

We are in the orange section, in the lower part of the central area of the map labeled Cultural/International.

If you have questions, need directions, etc. Please contact our Seneschal (Chapter President), Martyn via email by clicking here.


Welcome! Thank you for stopping by our table today. We will be having several activities coming up very soon, all of which can be found on our calendar here on this website.

Of immediate note: tomorrow, Friday August 31st we will be having one of our monthly “City Socials” which are held at West Lofts (220 S 47th Street), which is close to the Penn-West bus, and runs from 6pm-8pm. This is free, snacks are provided, and feel free to come and meet local members (a “social” doesn’t have any planned activity, it is just an opportunity for people to get together, work on projects, and socialize).

More info can also be found for the larger, regional group – The Barony of Bhakail on their website.
