Tell us about the event?
Each year Abbey Museum of Caboolture hold an award-winning festival celebrating all things Medieval!
As part of the celebrations a “Banquet” is held where guests can indulge in an authentic medieval experience, dining together in a large feast hall! Having grown in popularity over the years with tickets selling out quickly, 2013 saw the introduction of 2 Banquets to festival program, and Phoenix Entertainment were invited to be one of the feature acts for both Banquet events!
What was the brief for Entertainment?
Phoenix Entertainment were engaged to provide a feature fire show that would fit in with an authentic Medieval-style Banquet. Performers would be heralded by the Steward of the evening, and were to perform facing the “High Table” of dignitaries (ie event sponsors). Music and costumes were to suit the style and tone of the evening.
As Phoenix did not have an existing show or routines that fit this brief, they created, choreographed and rehearsed a special show to fit the brief for these events. Co-incidentally the first of the banquets fell on the night of Winter Solstice, which of course served as great creative inspiration for the performance!
