Do you love to laugh? Do you wish you could go to an event where laughing is what it is all about? Well, do I have a deal for you!

Æthelmearc's own Shire of Ballachlagen will be hosting a Known World Commedia Symposium! Not only will there be commedia troupes from all over the Known World, but the weekend will be a celebration of Renaissance Italian culture, with classes on Italian dance, fencing, mask-making and more! There will be an authentic period Italian feast and, of course, PERFORMANCES! So many performances that you might just want to have an extra chair just for the sitting and laughing you will do!
