27th - 29th April was the date given at Hogswatch. The Facebook page makes it look like that is an Australian event which makes no sense.

Bugger, I was in the process of putting together an Assassin's outfit. Did XXXX have a Guild of Assassins, or did the A-M Guild of Assassins at least let their members go walkabout?
