The Company of Faire Folk will be riding out again today to explore the Looking Glass in the first of our special off-season LitFest Tours – at the slightly more Euro-friendly time of 2pm SLT.

And there is an extra event ahead of this at 12noon SLT as ColeMarie Soleil plays a very special music set in the Looking Glass Woods, in the beautiful Faerie Circle. ColeMarie will be playing an artistic set filled daydreaming music, filled with whimsy.

The Company of Faire Folk will assemble in the Woods afterwards, and then explore the Looking Glass region, home of the Worldmakers, Sharni Azalee and Marcus Inkpen, creators of such fabulous Fairelands as Dark Mirage, Lotus Valley Dream, Ichi-go Ichi-e, Lucentia, Dawn’s Promise, The Spirit Tree … and many more!

You can see images of all of them here, on our earlier post about the Company riding out, and learn about Marcus and Sharni’s wonderful creations at Fantasy Faire.

LitFest Tours 2019
LitFest Tours 2019

The popular LitFest Tours run every day throughout Fantasy Faire, leaving daily at 5.00pm from the LitFest region to explore the Fairelands.

And now the Company of Faire Folk are going to be starting a series of off-season Tours to visit places around the Grid.

Our plan is to begin by visiting the homes of the Worldmakers and other people involved in the Faire, and to see what they are up to between Faires!

The Tours will be on Fridays at 5pm SLT. A location to meet will be chosen and share with the Company of Faire Folk Second Life group, and also published on this blog.

We talked to the Faire organiser David Abbot, in charge of operations, and he explains what a mammoth task it is keeping something like the Faire running, and how the community comes together to help.

We also visited Genesia and talked to its creators, Haveit Neox and Lilia Artis, about the amazing worlds they created above and below the waves – and the dance performances they staged there.

The Literary Festival at Fantasy Faire ran right through the 2019 event … and beyond!

We had poetry prompts and open mics sessions, guest readers (including our Guest of Honour, Elizabeth Bear), a dramatic performance in Overtroll, and, of course, the LitFest Tours (also known as The Company of Faire Folk Rides Out).
