Well known medieval performer and educator and Sunshine Castle resident Knight Sir Justyn, features regularly in the Sunshine Castle School Holiday program Sunshine Coast.
Sir Justyn always has something new to show and teach and these school holidays Sir Justyn will be bringing to life the crafts of the Middle Ages. Learn how maille armour (known to most today as chain mail) was made, watch a bow being crafted, and see arrows being made. See and handle some of the medieval craftsmans tools and even try your hand at some of these crafts yourself. You’ll learn about armour and shield making, leather work, woodwork, lace making, medieval glues, bottle making, and lots more.
All of this plus the usual fun activities; archery, kids jousting, 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 King Arthur and the round table!
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.
