6pm Frozen – When their kingdom becomes trapped in perpetual winter, fearless Anna (Kristen Bell) joins forces with mountaineer Kristoff (Jonathan Groff) and his reindeer sidekick to find Anna’s sister, Snow Queen Elsa (Idina Menzel), and break her icy spell. Although their epic journey leads them to encounters with mystical trolls, a comedic snowman (Josh Gad), harsh conditions, and magic at every turn, Anna and Kristoff bravely push onward in a race to save their kingdom from winter’s cold grip.

8 pm The Lion In Winter – It’s Christmas 1183, and King Henry II (Peter O’Toole) is planning to announce his successor to the throne. The jockeying for the crown, though, is complex. Henry has three sons and wants his boy Prince John (Nigel Terry) to take over. Henry’s wife, Queen Eleanor (Katharine Hepburn), has other ideas. She believes their son Prince Richard (Anthony Hopkins) should be king. As the family and various schemers gather for the holiday, each tries to make the indecisive king choose their option.

What is Land Court?

Land court is a tradition established many years ago. The Barony members are granted “lands” within the barony. The amount of lands are tied to awards an individual receives. Records are kept of the lands and the recipients pay “taxes” for these lands. Land Court Traditionally happens during our Yule Revel. Taxes are usually a combination of largess items for the barony and charitable donations.

What taxes will be collected this year?

Their Excellencies Bryn Gwlad will accept taxes of donations made to a local charity.

Below are the charities we are sponsoring for this event:

As part of the video chat session, we will be conducting a chat room decorating contest. Set up your display with your feast gear, decorations, and other finery. Their excellencies will select a winner. Video chat will occur from 3-6.
