Maria, we have done Highland Games for years,
with only minor emphasis on things "Celtic". We
are billed (by them) as "Medieval Scotland".
Perhaps a "theme" would satisfy NTIF, perhaps
There are ways to do the demo without excluding
other personas. We have offered, in the past,
classes on the real MacBeth, for instance.
Perhaps we could offer "Celtic" crafts, i.e.
chain mail making, bread baking, period cooking,
period songs, Celtic clothing, etc. I understand
why they want a Celtic emphasis, and I do not
think they will be hard-nosed about it.
