Well known medieval performer and educator and Sunshine Castle resident Knight Sir Justyn, features regularly in the Sunshine Castle School Holiday program. Be sure not to miss the canon fire or the weapons and armour talks or one of his ever changing archery challenges, jousting or trebuchet firing activities. Sir Justyn brings history to life and appears to have an answer for even the tricky questions.
All events in the program will be announced here!
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 medieval magic.
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 look to a simple but fun medieval game of apple bobbing to enchant the crowds and drench the kids.
There is nowhere where history is more real these school holidays. Check it out here!
