    Description: Winterfest, Sunday 3 July
    Winterfest – a medieval fair, Sunday 3 July, 10am

    Come and join us for a day of history, fantasy, dressing up and mock (I hope) jousting. Winterfest is being run this year on 2 and 3 July. https://winterfest.com.au/

    We are planning as a club to visit on Sunday 3 July, from 10am to 2pm’ish. The location is Hawkesbury Showground, Racecourse Road, Clarendon. There is free on-site parking and Clarendon Railway station is 2 mins walk from the gates. Google maps location here.

    One-day tickets are $25 for adult or $18 for concession and should be ordered online ahead of time. They are more expensive if purchased at the gate!! https://winterfest.com.au/ticket-info/

    Activities include:
    • Artisan demos
    • Medieval combat
    • Jousting
    • Equestrian skill at arms show
    • Medieval medicine show
    • Musicians
    • Mermaids cove
    • Feldergast the Fool
    • Birds of Prey
    • Medieval Kitchen Rules
    • Re-endactments
    Should be a great opportunity for photos of pageantry, portraits, action, horses, etc! But none of us have been before, so has to be seen as an adventure!

    We will aim to meet for lunch around 12.30pm (although no info yet on food on the website – we’ll update you when we know.)
