Storming of the Gate is a small SCA camping event held on the private land belonging to Lord Justinian Clarus in the Shire of Trinovantia Nova in the Kingdom of Ealdormere. Now in its tenth year, the full name of the event is The Annual Syr David Martin Failsworth Memorial Storming of the Great Gate Fight Practice, Pot Luck, and Pool Party. Occuring every summer for the past decade, SOG primarily draws Ealdormereans from the Shire of Trinovantia Nova, the Barony of Ramshaven, the Barony of Ben Dunfirth and warriors from the Midrealm Barony of Starleaf Gate.

SOG revolves around a series of assaults on the Great Gate at the edge of the property, along with woods battles in the woodlot nearby. The armoured combat melees are often held between House Blacksword and the Rozakii.

Owing to the popularity of fencing in the Shire, there has been a fencing tournament held in recent years at SOG, and there are also several assaults and defenses on the gate by fencers.

After the fighting is finished, the traditional brass hat soup, barbeque and campfire occurs. Because Trinovantia Nova is a shire and not a barony, there is no baronial court. There is also no formal feast at this event. Storming of the Gate is known across Ealdormere as being a very wet event, and events around the fire include traditional medieval singing, drinking, and wenching.
