Would you like to be part of this year’s Medieval Festival, if so fill in the form below and we will get back to you.
We are looking for volunteers for the set up and breakdown of the Festival on the day along with extra hands to help out with workshops and activities and stewards who will be keeping an eye on the event to ensure queues don’t get too long, litter doesn’t build up and everybody is having a good time. We will feed you, water you, provide you costumes for the day and we guarantee lots of fun, come on why not help out this year?!
The second Kildare Town Medieval Festival was on Sunday 21st August 2016. Last year’s festival saw the Normans return to Kildare along with the huge crowds who turned up to make it an amazing day out for all interests and ages!
The stallholders, activity providers and volunteers came out in their Medieval Costume and we hope to see even more dressed up this year. We had some different activities in 2016 such as the Moon&Sixpence Puppet Theatre, an Ancient Irish Music demo in St. Brigid’s Cathedral and The Exploration Dome which gave all who entered a chance to see the skies from the time of the Normans. No doubt 2017 will be even better than last year so if you want to get involved click here.
