14-15 July 2018 - The Abbey - Caboolture, QLD


Through this unique annual celebration, the Abbey Museum of Art and Archaeology enables visitors to participate in medieval history through a highly engaging and immersive event that is proudly the most authentic in the southern hemisphere.  Re-enactors, musicians and street performers from across Australia join in a dynamic display of life, pageantry and the drama of medieval Europe.  The Festival includes two banquets, a week of children-focused activities at the ‘Kids Dig It! Medieval Family Fun’ week and a tournament weekend with displays of iron-clad warriors locked in battle and jousting knights on their magnificent horses. There is archery, dancing, music, games, crafts and a large medieval market.  Visitors are encouraged to wear period costume to deepen their own personal medieval experience.

In 2018, the 29th Abbey Medieval Festival brings you an extended program with more engaging personal experiences, more immersive family-fun and more active learning than ever-before. This spectacular event serves as a vital fund-raiser for the Abbey Museum of Art and Archaeology, in Caboolture, North Brisbane in fulfilling its vision of ‘enriching people’s lives through the stories created from our collection’. 

Esford looks forward to seeing you there.
