LH at Roscommon Lamb Festival

Postby Bandraoi on Tue Mar 01, 2011 10:51 am

Paid gig happening the May Bank Holiday weekend in Roscommon, as part of the annual food festival http://www.roscommonlambfestival.com/

Animal roast on the sat afternoon/evening, and LH displays and demos at Roscommon Castle on the sunday.

Not a huge amount of cash available, more for those who have LH displays and for tentage - but it's nice to be appreciated ;)

Contact Lora or John (Duckie) during work hours on 071 9639268

This is great guys, thanks.

There is a big event going on the saturday too - http://www.roscommonlambfestival.com/world-record-attempt
1000 knitters?! In Hyde Park the big stadium.

There's camping available on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday, all the firewood you could ask for, and even a few haunches of meat to throw on the fires (what, did somebody mention venison?!). It's a food festival, so they'll, well, feed us too.

Dressing in kit on Saturday and Sunday gets you paid.
Living History displays at any stage over the weekend gets you paid.
Combat demos and scaring the knitters on Saturday gets you paid.
Combat demos on the Sunday gets you paid.
Tentage and elaborate LH set up gets you paid.

Basically, the more you do, the more you get paid. There's obviously a cap on the over all budget, but they are very keen to keep us happy, as it has been firmly pressed on them that looking after the re-enactors is the priority here, because the re-enactors will entertain the crowds. We can be entertaining, right?!
