Eggzcalibur!, stories and more with Lord Stephen!
The Storyteller extraordinaire Lord Stephen of Landsborough loves inviting you to join him as he recounts the stories of travels and travellers, knights, kings and legends. Find out about princesses, castles, battles and the sword in the stone.
May there be a story that grabs your imagination and beams you back in time. Perhaps you will be asked to kneel and recite the knight’s oath. A lucky few will be knighted indeed.
When the story is told and and the young royals require a challenge to prove their skill and strength – the Lord Stephen will be running some fun and challenging games for kids that send a couple of modern favourite’s back to the past.
More fun and games with Sir Hop a Lot
The Easter Bunny has his sights set on knightdom.
Sir Hop a lot has hired on as our knight in training and is in charge of Courtyard Crafts and Games. Coming from a land far far away he wants to learn all about our Castle in Australia.
Try his special Eggchallenge, DIY Crown making, the Easter colour in as well as some great BIG games that will keep the young and the young at heart busy with royal business.
Let Sir Hop a Lot take your photo in our stocks or take a selfie with the world’s most eager easter knight.
