Event description

Description

The Institute for Historical Arts is proud to announce the return of its annual tournament Edgebana. This year promises to be bigger than ever; we will be running both an Open and Women's (dependent on number of fighters) longsword tournament, Open Singlestick tournament, and invitational Franco-Belgian tournament.

Edgebana takes place within the historic City Church, The Friary, on Tullideph Road just outside of Dundee city centre.

Tickets for a single event will cost £45. We offer a £5 judging discount per event. Entering a second competition will only cost an additional £5.

Competitors are encouraged to bring their own weapons however the IHA will also be providing weapons for the tournaments.

The IHA offers gear rental for a small fee of £5, however supplies are limited so we recommend competitors bring their own.

Although competitors are welcome to store their kit in the Friary, it is at their own risk and we accept no liability for lost/stolen property.

Unfortunately we are unable to offer accommodation on-site this year, however we can recommend a few places to stay in and around Dundee.

The Dundee Backpackers Hostels offers rooms in the city centre for very reasonable prices (starting from £18):
