Event description
Swordpunk is an alternative weekend of weapon skills combined with the energy and intimacy of a small, grass roots festival

About this Event

The year is 2020, it's the Future!

Empires Strike Back as resources dwindle, it's madness to the Max!

And with old alliances being torn apart it can feel like we're heading towards a dystopian vision.

But all is not lost! Whether you're a seasoned veteran or budding adventurer we want YOU to join this rag tag bunch of Rebels at Swordpunk in May to shine a light in the dark and leave invigorated with new friends and a new hope...

As a response to the current rise of Chaos, we at Swordpunk are pleased to offer many tickets at reduced prices. Be sure to take advantage of the first few waves.

We hope you'll be with us for the best of weekends, rammed with swashbuckling sword skiils, martial arts, target sports, circus skills, boat jousting and bow shootouts, blacksmithing and other crafts on the beautiful grounds of a private estate in Warwickshire.

Over the weekend you'll choose six one hour sessions in the disciplines of your choice, with detailed tuition from our high quality instructors, all of whom are at there to help you develop at your own pace.

Swordfighting, HEMA, fencing and tomahawk

Knife, axe and spear throwing,

Juggling, balancing, stilt walking, gunslinging, lassooing and other circus skills,

Martial arts (what to do when your sword/axe/spear isn't to hand, and even what to do once you've captured an opponent!)

Rope-dart

Whip-cracking

Instinctive archery

Air rifle

Pole-arms

Drumming

There are also seperate craft classes that you can book on the weekend:

Blacksmithing

Spoon carving

Basic coppercraft jewelry making

And we don't just fight and play together, we feast, drink and party too when old comrades meet again and new friends are welcomed just as warmly at the Shattered Shield Tavern.

On Saturday night we dress in our finest costumes as Jedi and Sith, Survivors and Wasteland Warriors rub shoulders with Assassins and Amazons, Paladins and Pirates.

Watch (or even join in with!) the infamous Swordpunk Fire Circle, where fire and circus performers are joined by dancers, duelists, drummers and warriors with flaming weapons

Then dance the night away in Rebels Corner, a cave of trees filled with the beats of drummers and blacksmiths by day and by the break beat mixes of our incredible live DJ by night.

On Sunday the classes continue, then in the afternoon join in with the Bow Battles, Boat Jousting and Space hopper jousts!

With so many activities on offer it can all seem a bit exhausting so you're welcome to take things at your own pace and at any time go for a wander or relax on the beautiful estate, designed by Capability Brown.

We hope you'll be with us in Force...
