Abbey Medieval Festival



Relive the days of yore and experience the sights, sounds, tastes and aromas of the Middle Ages as you step back in time at the Abbey Medieval Festival

Abbey Medieval Festival

For 3 massive, fun-filled days, July 2-4, visitors will be immersed in the colour and pageantry of Medieval times with displays of combat, jousting, falconry, dancing, music, drama, and medieval arts and crafts.

Abbey Medieval Festival

Wander around the medieval encampments to discover what life was like in the Middle Ages, stroll through the vibrant marketplace, feast upon a variety of flavours spanning many cultures and traditions, and enjoy a cold ale or mead at the Stag Inn.  

Abbey Medieval Festival

The much-loved Festival kicks off on Friday, July 2 with a Medieval Family Fun Day guaranteed to entertain the whole clan, with jousting to watch, encampments to explore, animals to pet, arts and craft on display, plus a wide range of fun activities for children. In the Kid's Kingdom, there'll be shields to paint and crowns to decorate, while young squires and fair maidens can take part in Page training, Squire school or the Jester workshop.

On Saturday and Sunday, Tournament Weekend, the Festival will be a hive of activity offering something for everyone; from jugglers and jesters, dancers and musicians, markets and crafts, archery and jousting, Weapons of War and Turkish Oil Wrestling.

Abbey Medieval Festival

See Turkish folk dancing, hear Medieval music played on strange instruments like the hurdy gurdy, listen to The Knights of the Long Dog talk about the role of greyhounds in medieval times, ride a camel, catch a Birds of Prey show, or try your hand at one of the many workshops on offer.

Make sure to visit the markets where there'll be a wide range of traders selling everything from candles and jewellery to costumes, hats and horns. Sample some toffee apples or indulge in a sweet fruit tart, or for something more substantial, try a venison pie, delicious paella or authentic German sausage.  

Abbey Medieval Festival

At the heart of the Abbey Medieval Festival are the encampments and their re-enactors, whose passion for history, commitment to authenticity, and love of all things medieval will inspire and entertain you. More than 760 medieval re-enactors from 40 different groups will be setting up encampments at this year’s medieval festival.

Abbey Medieval Festival

Visitors are encouraged to explore the encampments and experience the aspects of medieval daily life, including traditional cooking and craftmanship techniques, displays of pageantry, and, of course, the animals.

No Festival experience would be complete without feeling the cannon blast and witnessing the firing of the largest functioning trebuchet in Australia at the encampment of Cottereaux - Company of the Dagger.
