From Monday 27th June to Friday 1st July, the Abbey Museum will welcome families for a special week full of medieval-themed fun activities for the kids and, of course, parents. The week will be jam-packed with fun things to keep your young squires or maidens entertained and engaged during the school holidays.
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
The Abbey Medieval Festival respects and acknowledges the Kabi Kabi First Nation as the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which the Festival stands. We pay our respect to their Elders past, present and emerging.
