Close experiences……of a medieval kind

Hello again readers,

Blog time again and what a busy week we have had! A bigger than expected response to our ads in New South Wales and Victoria, has left us in awe of our followers there.  How happy are we to know you are out there!  Thank you!

In the competition last week, we asked our followers to complete a sentence about an experience they wish to fulfill at the Medieval Festival this year.  It is always so interesting and sometimes unpredictable to hear what people say, and as the person whose job it is to look after those experiences…..it’s really my thing!!!

We have had some wonderful replies across the range: medieval food and drink, music and armour, to sword fighting and jousting and battling

(or how’s this one) and medieval religious ceremony! 

Or….. to simply just being there!  We know that each one is important and actually quite personal and by getting it right we are honoured to be part of creating lasting and enjoyable memories for you and your loved ones.  And we acknowledge that!

But let me just add, however, by part-creation of these personal memories, the other part is up to you!  And we SO want to present the right environment …the correct mix and match of medieval factors….that will inspire the exact level of engagement that you wish to contribute to this year’s festival and ultimately support your experiences.  (Shh! Secretly what we want is to help enable a little…. but very personal…. medieval transformation to go on in your head; for you to leave this century and go back in time…..but more about that in a later blog).

In other words, just get in there and see what happens!

(Hint!  If you are really after a deep engagement with the festival this year, consider volunteering! You won’t be disappointed! Be one of the first on-site, experience the medieval engine as it revs up, and don’t forget the food!)

So let me pick one!  The one experience that is proving extremely popular is the Fashion Trail!  Ok, so this one is probably more for the Gals! Anyway, we are in the process of inviting some guest bloggers (of fashionable interest) to tell us about their fashion journey, but in the mean-time, please, I want to know about yours!

I mentioned my own fashion story briefly in my first blog.  And I’m pleased to say the project is making steady progress.  A pattern has been agreed, and fabric and colours have been negotiated.  Measurements are being taken …(and re-taken, I think for my own sake I want to wait until my steak dinner has settled)…and it’s all happening.  Carolyn in Stanhope Gardens……let’s hear from you too!

So I’m thinking the fashion this year is going to ROCK!

Brisbane Fashion Festival and Teenvogue are you listening? I’d like to see some medieval gear on the cat walk…wouldn’t you readers??
