Knights, knaves and damsels in distress, swords and shields and majestic war horses, what more can you ask for to entertain the whole family. And with school holidays coming up, where else would you take the kids where they can imagine themselves in the shoes of brave Robin Hood and beautiful Maid Marian or even the dastardly Sheriff of Nottingham. Will Robin save the day. Every weekend watch the Skill at Arms horsemanship display to see the award winning knights and warhorses of Kryal Castle compete in a challenge designed to test their skills with sword, lance and spear. Cheer on your favorite knight on the Tournament Arena during The Royal Joust everyday at 2pm.
Kryal Castle is open every weekend from 10am-4pm and daily for the school holidays. Be part of the adventure and excitement starting when you cross the drawbridge and enter Kryal Castle, journey through the chambers of the Dragons Labyrinth; get lost in the maze; be entertained by pantomimes in the Jesters Theatre; visit the wizard in his workshop; join in a potion-making workshop; or learn the ancient art of archery. One of the favourites with all the kids is the Knight Training where children are invited to take centre stage and learn the skills of knighthood, fighting under instruction from our knights with sword and shield.
A favourite event at Kryal Castle each year is the Timeline Festival. The Festival is a multi-period living history weekend covering everything from early Viking through to WW2. Visit the period encampments and living history displays, watch the world-class jousting and skill at arms display, marvel at the age of gunpowder with musket displays by Napoleonic era British and French armies or visit the many period traders and market stalls. There will be so much going on over the weekend of October 28 and 29, don’t miss it. Keep up to date with the latest information at www.timeline.org.au
