Welcome to the Canton of Stegby!
The SCA welcomes people from all walks of life. It doesn't matter what you do in the mundane world, how old or young you are, how much you know about the medieval world, or whether you can sew, fight, dance, sing or discuss academia - everyone is welcome! The group's focus is very diverse as we study a period of over 1000 years. We don't limit ourselves to one culture or particular event in history.
If you are interested in coming along to our regular meetings, or want to know a little bit more about what we do, read on!

There is much to get involved in. Here are a few deeper suggestions:
- Most Officers are always looking for Deputies to fulfill roles. Heraldry requires Heralds to make announcements at events. Marshals are required to guide the conflicts. The Chronicler appreciates reporters at Tourneys for The Rag. And many more...
- Do you have hidden artistic talents? The Arts and Sciences Officer organises weekly workshops to share skills. Perhaps it's time to spread your creative passions.
