The St Ives Medieval Faire is committed to supporting the education of local students through living history.

For the two weeks prior to the faire, trained and accredited educators from Hands on History will be conducting a 2-hour incursion. Hands on History, based in Brisbane, brings your students a taste of history with many re-production medieval artifacts, a live performance, and hands-on interaction.

Typically a 2 hour presentation (approx) broken up as follows;

  • 1 1/2 hour performance with student volunteers
  • 1/2 hour – all students and teachers hands on access with our medieval artifacts
  • Students are encouraged to ask questions throughout the performance.

One of our event Knights will often attend the session, subject to their training demands.

This event is offered free to all schools.
