A Light in the Darkness

15th-17th May 2020

“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 skills, 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 whatever your skill level.”

Close Combat

Swordfighting, HEMA, Fencing or Swashbuckling to Please a Crowd, Polearms and 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!)

Ranged & Flexible

Instinctive Archery, Knife, Axe & Spear Throwing, Rope Dart, Whip Cracking and an Air Rifle Range


Juggling, Balancing, Gunslinging, Lassooing and Other Circus Skills


Meet the local Blacksmith at his workshop and you’ll also get to learn some Spoon Carving and Basic Coppercraft


Brave the depths in the “sturdiest” of crafts and battle it out on the water


Feasting, Fire, Drumming, Dancing & Drinking,

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…
