The big Scan…

Your experience …….we take it seriously at the Abbey Medieval Festival.

Today, an up-to-the-minute QR-code-scanning experience via a print ad in the national newspapers.  Cutting edge technology, perhaps!

In July, join the medieval transformation, where your sword displays the cutting edge!

Another kind of 'Cutting Edge'

 

NSW and Victoria….Do you read me??

Hello again readers,

I left you hanging yesterday, sorry,  but literally, I was mid sentence when I got a call about….. I think I can say it out loud now…. our Competition!

Queenslanders! We love you of course, that goes without saying, but we want to share this love. Lets forget about rugby and forget about the weather.  Right now, we are so excited to be connecting in this fantastic way to NSW and VIC!

So NSW and VIC, how does a week in Queensland sound?  Fly the family up, lap up a little sunshine, drive around in a nice car, live it up at a luxury resort,  do the VIP thing at the Abbey Medieval Festival….and visit three other fantastic Queensland experiences.

You know you deserve this!!

Ok, here’s the how!

Sydney-siders! – get the Sun Herald this Sunday, find the travel section, you will find an Abbey Medieval Festival ad in the Destinations Magazine insert.

Likewise, Melbourne – Get the Age!

Here’s where it gets interesting.  You’ll find a QR code on the ad, get hold of your chatting device (aka mobile phone), and scan the code.  Now, if it all works ok, you’ll find yourself in our Facebook landing page, where you are asked to input your details to enter our fantastic competition!

And tell us more about the competition I hear you say.  Ok. will do…

We are offering one lucky family from either Sydney or Melbourne, return flights to Brisbane, a week’s accommodation in the luxurious Novotel Twin Waters, a family car for a week sponsored by the wonderful folk at Martin Jonkers Motors, Caboolture…..and let me see, what else??

Oh yes, be treated by a VIP at the Abbey Medieval Festival and enjoy free family passes to Australia ZooAussie World and the amazing Bellingham Maze!!!!

Why wouldn’t you?

Ok, I am now officially exhausted from excitement. Time out, and have a wonderful weekend.

Caroline

PS.  For God’s sake, get the Sunday papers!!!

 

 

Caroline calls to New South Wales and Victoria!

 

Hello to readers of this Blog!
I am Caroline and I work as a member of the Abbey Medieval Festival Marketing team.  I’m a little new to blogging but I am hoping to get to know people out there and keep you updated on events as they progress with the Abbey Medieval Festival.

We are aware that we have a large number of followers from New South Wales and Victoria and we want to express our appreciation for your interest and loyalty.

 I would especially like to welcome my friend and old neighbour(less of the old…!) Carolyn Blunden from Stanhope Gardens in NSW. Carolyn is studying to be a Fashion Designer and guess what…..Carolyn’s inaugural art piece is going to be my Medieval Banquet gown!  Thank you so much Carolyn!  (Wait untill my five year old daughter Alice sees me in one of your numbers……No pressure C, I’m not expecting to look like someone straight out of the set of the Tudors!


I can’t wait to get this project moving.  Carolyn has a  fascination of all things Medieval, so I’m wondering how we can reach out to other Medieval Make Believers out there…………

Hang on…. I know exactly how!!!

 Let you know tomorrow, promise…I have final details to attend to….watch this blog…..

The Abbey Medieval Festival Celebrates Today!

 

The Abbey Medieval Festival (Quietly) Celebrates Today.

Acting Premier Andrew Fraser visited us this morning to announce a bit of a funding boost for the Abbey Medieval Festival event over the next three years.

Well, allright then, it was a significant funding boost!

We are really happy to have this acknowledgement that we are a much-loved family and community event.

We love that we are significantly contributing  economically and culturally to the local community as well as nationally and internationally.

These funds will be used strategically over three years to gorw our visitation from interstate and international markets.  We are also looking forward to launching some fantastic on-line innovations as a result of this grant funding to ensure we continue for many years to come to be the biggest and the best Medieval Festival in the Southern hemisphere.

Thank you Events Queensland!

We were very proud last week to be noted as one of the Must-See QLD Events in 2012 too!

Our preparations are well under way for tne 2012 production of the Abbey Medieval Festival and our ticket sales are about to open on-line on 1st February.

Meanwhile today, in amongst the planning and preparations we took time to have a special cuppa and cake.
