The Powerful owl is a symbol of strength, wisdom and grace. At GNW each year many gather to test their skills against each other to seek out who is the Powerful owl. Sadly Great Northern War as we know it will not be happening this year due to Covid, however there are many elements we all love about GNW, one aspect is the Powerful owl Tournament.

The Barony of River Haven is hosting several day events to celebrate the different aspects of GNW, so We invite all Heavy and Rapier combatants to attend this event and test your skills against our friends from near and far.

The Crown is attending to bear witness to the skills at arms of those entering the tournament. A subtle reminder that many that have won the powerful Owl tournament, have also gone on to win Crown.

The famous GNW Market day will also happen at this event, so we encourage all stall holders to come and sell your wares

Please note: Due to Covid requirements, booking for this event is mandatory

This event board approved for catering, so everyone will get a River Haven Happy Meal (ploughman’s lunch). We will do our best to cater for as many dietary needs as possible.
