Well known medieval performer and educator and Sunshine Castle resident Knight Sir Justyn, features regularly in the Sunshine Castle School Holiday program Sunshine Coast.
This is your chance to participate in:
The Archery Challenge – this is the battle of skill and coordination with bow and arrow.
- Head to head archery shoot out with participants having to shoot all of their own targets before proceeding to the final target
- Beat the clock challenge – where participants are shooting for a Personal Best – or to get on the leader board
Royal Junior Jousting Games – involve a series of jousting targets and a randomly selected challenges such as
- “Power up”- make the quintain turn three rotations with a single blow and
- “Dead Eye” – strike the smallest target on the quintain
All of this plus weapons and armour displays makes for a fun and educational experience for all ages.
All events in the program will be announced here!
Sir Justyn also runs a medieval reenactment Group Eslit d’Corps
The mysteries of the lady knights and stories of Heroines of the Middle Ages!
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 be running some fun and challenging games for kids that send a couple of modern favourite’s back to the past.
There is nowhere where history is more real these school holidays. Check it out here!
When Creativity is the name of the game – with the Courtyard transforming into a big arts, crafts and games mecca.
