Tickets for this year’s Abbey Medieval Festival have sold out – but applications are open for volunteers and a raffle for VIP boxes and tickets is still open.
Organisers say with the July 8 and 9 festival at capacity there will be no gate sales and they have nominated an official reseller.
“We have noticed an increase volume of scammers on our social media, so we have engaged Tixel as an official reseller.”
Would-be festival-goers can enter a draw to win tickets to the popular event, with two private VIP boxes for up to eight guests and two Sunday VIP tickets up for grabs.
The private boxes come with dedicated parking, food, drinks and premium viewing for jousting sessions.
There are only 6000 tickets available and entries close on July 2. To enter, click here.
Catch a bus
For those who already have tickets, organisers have arranged a third-party bus service to make getting to and from the festival a breeze.
There are 13 pick-up locations across Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast. Find out more here.
Fun for kids
Children can get in on the medieval action with Kids Dig It! during the school holidays.
There’s a week of hands-on educational fun for the whole family from June 26-30, with archery, crafts, an archaeological dig, dress-ups and sessions about medieval weaponry.
