Hail dear visitor, welcome to informative page for 2016's NZ Medieval Faire. The intention is to lure you to the Medieval Faire which will be at Tauranga Racecourse on 22nd, 23rd, 24th January 2016. There will be many Medieval delights, and an artisan traders' market with goods for sale and display.
The Faire will be open to the public 2-5pm Friday, 10-4 Saturday and 10-4 Sunday. Entry is FREE but bring coins to buy Faire tokens to have-a-go at a variety of activities
(Visiting on Saturday - you will need to pay to get in to the A&P Lifestyle Show). Come on any or all days and venture into times past, dress up (or down, either is acceptable!)
We bring you explorations through time - Knights melee, Romans roam, Barbarians bay, the Vikings are a-viking ... the gentlefolk of the Saxon and High Middle Ages are quieter, but have plenty for you to admire, skills to try, beard competitions to enter.
The schedule is forming:
Friday 1.30 - 5pm: Squire school and Princess Party ($20 per child, plenty of activities and action - limited spaces, get in touch now!)
Saturday: 10 - 4pm: Displays, tournaments and competitions in many Medieval skills, archery, siege artillery, beardedness, combat, dance - skills you didn't know exist but want to watch or to try! Hodden horse skill-at-arms?
Sunday: 10-4pm: all that Saturday offers plus competition finals, knightly combat - Historical Medieval Battle, possibly some Juggah ... maybe a parade of people of history.
1066 - Battles of Hastings, Stamford Bridge & on - a themed play is brewing!
1666 - Great fire of London ... we do not want to re-enact this in NZ!
