Though the official name is the Kids Medieval Fun Day, I think I had just as much fun as my four year old today. There was a huge range of great things to see and do – from princess hat making to belly dancing, puppet shows to sword fighting and much much more. But even more imporantly, all the things I usually dread at large scale family events – parking, toilets and buying food – were a breeze. What a wonderfully orchestrated and entertaining event.
A school hall transformed into an authentic medieval banquet hall for more than 300 people? As a volunteer waitress for the 2011 Abbey Medieval Festival Banquet, I had the increadible experience of being there from start to finish of this fantastic event.
