Today we went to Blacktown Medeival Fayre. This event runs every year and is free. We think it is better than the others you need to pay for! The children saw, and participated in, plenty of fights along with a joust and firearms display.
We saw how the cannon and trebuchet worked
L finished off her opponent with a whack to the bits!
The joust was particularly entertaining as one knight managed to lance his opponent in the groin causing him to almost black out and fall from his horse! Luckily he was OK and went on to take the championship.
There were lots of other medieval displays and hands on activities.
There was also a small display of World War vehicles and equipment.
