10am – 3pm Friday 2 July 2021

This mini Medieval Festival will feature many of the experiences on offer over the weekend but with a special focus on making them friendly and engaging for the younger members of the family. There will be opportunities to wander through medieval encampments, meet re-enactors, see armour and weapons and learn traditional crafts or listen to stories of knights in shining armour and fierce Viking warriors.

In the Kids’ Kingdom there will be art and craft activities for all to enjoy.  While on the Castle Arena your family can play medieval games, stilt walk, participate in Page training and join in a dancing workshop where you will learn the Farandole or the Horses Brawl.

The day will also feature two joust sessions and there will be archery for our young Robin Hood fans.

Let the kids take a time out from the festival in the Kids’ Kingdom where they can create and play. Kids can:

  • design their own heraldry and paint it on a shield
  • decorate a princess hat (hennin), a crown, or a mask
  • make a miniature catapult
  • test out their balance on stilts
  • play medieval games like skittles, battledore, quoits and Nine Men’s Morris

Make a pilgrimage this year to Medieval Family Fun Day at Abbeystowe in the Moreton Bay Region, the home of the Abbey Medieval Festival!

It is a chance to step back in time as 1,000 years of history come to life. It is authentic, inspirational and value for the entire family!
