Sheffield Medieval Fest

One of the many things I’ve wanted to do for years is to do a Ren Fair and the Sheffield Medieval Fest is probably the closest I’ll get.

It’s held annually and hosted by The Sovereign Military Order of the Knights Templar Tasmania.

The day was amazing, we had the best weather (and even got a little sunburnt in the 27C day!)

We saw jousting and knights in armour.

but the birds of prey were definitely the favourite. I’d love to do falconry.

There was a wide variety of stalls too from the show bags and pony rides to archery and the SCA; basket weaving, lots of handmade goods and I got to meet local witchy author Jo Green. She was lovely and I ended up purchasing her first book S^ord, which I am enjoying so far.

Really looking forward to heading back next year and hopefully making it a yearly family outing.
