Ignite your imagination at Kryal Castle these school holidays.

Winter is here! Resist hibernating indoors and embrace the season. Warm up with Knights of Fire – The Festival of the Flames at Kryal Castle, Ballarat these school holidays and beyond (July 1st –July 30th).

You will be enthralled by our Knights of Fire and Snow Queen Neva. Witness the spectacular Flaming Joust on the Main Arena as Sir Hector meets the Black Knight in a fiery clash, and the knights battle to cure the icy heart of the Snow Queen.

Journey through the chambers of the Dragons Labyrinth; get lost in our maze; be enchanted by pantomimes; visit our wizard in his workshop; join in a potion-making workshop; or learn the ancient art of archery. Attend a puppet making workshop, or test your skills of combat at Knights Training- where you could learn to be Kryals new hero against the darkest depths of winter’s powerful forces.

Warm yourself at one of the blazing braziers around the grounds as you enjoy the roving entertainment or make your way to our castle Abbey for story-telling and puppetry, as well as a roaring fire and warm tavern meals.
