Event Details

Swords of the Silver Screen! Prepare to buckle your swash and join the Ring of Steel for a romp through the very best of Hollywood sword fights and learn how they're made!

It takes years to make a swordsman but movie actors have to quickly be trained and then perform complex fights in frequently cumbersome costumes without the benefits of real armor or face masks. How do we do it? We'll share behind the scenes stories and perform live battles for you while sharing tales and equipment from our armory of over 2500 prop weapons. "Out Swords, and to work withal!"

This show is geared towards viewers 8 and older who are interested in learning about weapons and fighting styles from the movies they see.
