Have Abbey Medieval Festival Package….will travel!

Hello readers,

It has been a while since I last posted on this page and I am currently working on the perfect excuse to contact you all again.  Today I’m going to give you a fantastic reason to visit Brisbane this winter.  Today I’m going to tell you all about the ‘Abbey Medieval Festival Travel Package’!

We had a lot of feed back last year that people found it hard to get to regional Brisbane festivals and in particular to our corner of the world for the Abbey Medieval Festival  Your travel arrangements were complicated and you found it difficult to find a place to stay……  simply put..you needed some help!  And yes we recognise while its wonderful to have a medieval festival like this with more than 37,000 visitors, the logistics involved for our visitors were challenging.

So this year, we have the perfect solution for you!

The Abbey Medieval Festival has teamed up with a number of partners to bring you ‘The Abbey Medieval Festival Package’.  Three clicks and your travel is sorted! This package is like a pilll to take away your travel pain!  Flights, accommodation, breakfast, transfers to and from the airport and transfers to and from the festival, all sorted!

Here’s how it works!

Simply click on the link below, complete the form and our awesome ‘Travel Experience Partner’ – Uplift Tours and Travel will contact you within twenty-four hours. (Usually sooner!)

You will see also that the landing page features our two Accommodation Partners.

We present the RendezVous Hotel and Suites and the Econolodge, both based in Brisbane CBD.  These properties are great value and have a great range of rooms and suites allocated for visitors to the Abbey Medieval Festival. Just pick your choice, and Uplift Tours and Travel will arrange the rest.

So this is a perfect solution for all those Abbey Medieval Festival visiting families and traveling groups out there to make life easier.  Give us your travelling challenges and we will make it happen for you!

Connecting and reconnecting

Hello everyone,
Today in my blog post I want to talk about connecting with the special people in your life and how important those experiences and memories are to us.

I had a great week this week! I re-found two special people in my life that due to geography and being neglectful, I had lost connection with. It’s only afterwards that you realise how much you have missed out. And as soon as you hear that person’s voice again, the connection is instant and the time lapse dissappears. And thanks to Facebook and technology, we are in touch again. What a special feeling.

Very often people drop in and out of our lives and sometimes we are left wondering why this person appeared and disappeared. Sometimes, it takes a special occasion to nurture those people that mean so much to you but you don’t see that often.

You cannot wonder, then, why we are so happy here in the festival marketing team to learn that more and more of our visitors use the Abbey Medieval Festival  and the Kids’ Medieval Fun Day as their occasion to reconnect and spend time with the special people in their lives. Thank you to all of those fabulous ‘connectors’ who do a much better job than I do and proactively look after the special relationships in their lives.  We are so honoured that you are choosing the Abbey Medieval Festival as your  venue for reunion.  What a compliment!

And because we know how difficult it is to organise friends and relatives who are interstate, we wanted to try and help out!  Have you heard about our competition?

Just click here and complete your details and you are in the running for a great prize worth $3,000.  The prize consists of flights for a family of four from either Sydney or Melbourne, a car to get around, a week’s accommodation in the luxurious Novotel Twin Waters in the Sunshine Coast, VIP tickets for the Abbey Medieval Festival and to top it off – three more fantastic Queensland experiences – free family passes for Australia Zoo, Aussie World and Bellingham Maze.

This is our way of helping all those connectors out there because we know it takes a lot of time and effort to make these occasions happen.  So if you are in Queensland trying your best to get interstate family and friends together this July holidays, tell them about this competition!

Don’t miss out on those special memories and experiences.

Till next time, my friends,

Caroline

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??
