Medieval fun and games at Victory Castle

JUST yonder from Tiaro, Fraser Coast's own medieval village, Victory Village at Riverbend, will open their gates to the public with games and demonstrations of the 14th century.

Village residents Lord Terence and Lady Tonya Blake said the timing worked with the Australian Medieval Re-enactment season in full-swing.

"We will host a medieval-styled village fayre featuring the newly formed Riverbend Medieval Society, who will be demonstrating armed combat and archery displays," Lady Tonya said.

"The village will come alive with children playing hopscotch and having fun with their parents in three-legged races.

"Interest in the art and craft market stalls is increasing and so too are the number of visiting medieval period re-enactors.

"It gives the public a small view of what life would have been like for our forebears in a small medieval village in 14th century England."

Olden Day Games and Pastimes will be held at Victory Village at Riverbend, located 12kms west of Tiaro on Sunday, June 17 from 10am to 4pm.

Entry fee was $5 for adults and secondary students, $2 for primary school students. For more information contact Victory Village at Riverbend on 0499 343 007, visit victory-castle-at- riverbend.com or Facebook.

"We are excited to host this event with a focus on family-friendly entertainment," Lord and lady Blake said.
