The Abbey Medieval Festival comprises of three exciting events: the Abbey Medieval Banquet (on the 5th July), Free Children's Medieval Day (on the 7th July) and the Abbey Medieval Tournament (on the 12th and 13th July).

The Abbey Medieval Festival will be the 19th time it has been held and it is now renowned as the largest and most authentic medieval festival in Australia.

Abbey Medieval Banquet
Admission by Pre-paid tickets only.

The Abbey Medieval Festival week (from the 5th to the 13th July 2008) starts off with the traditional Abbey Medieval Banquet on the 5th July where guests get to eat in medieval style.

Seating is allocated on a first-come, first seats basis. To create that medieval feel, seating is at long trestle tables on benches. Your ticket includes a token for a complimentary glass of mulled wine. This Banquet is licensed and a bar will sell alcoholic beverages. Please note: No BYO.

Your meal will consist of two removes and an issue. The Steward of the Feast will guide you through the manners required of those attending a banquet. Food will be served on platters and it is medieval etiquette and the height of good manners that you pass the food to your neighbours to share.

Costuming is optional, however, we do encourage guests to enter into the spirit of the event by dressing to impress.
