Families are invited to make magical memories during the summer holidays in York’s latest interactive walking tour and theatrical experience.
Organised by the attraction A Very Magical Adventure, Knights, Dragons and Princesses will be running on selected dates throughout the summer holidays from 31 July to 3 September.
Will you take on the quest to help King Arthur save his kingdom?
The quest will take place across York, starting in Museum Gardens where you will meet your guide, a Knight of the Sacred Order of the White Rabbit.
Along the way you will learn how to cast spells, train to be a knight and – if you should be successful – be welcomed into the elite Knights order.
‘Astonishing’ special effects and a fiery dragon surprise also awaits but don’t worry – there will be sweet treats and refreshments to help you on your way.
Blackadder meets Horrible History
Lara Dudley, owner of A Very Magical Adventure, commented, “The eggs of the Mighty Dragon Guardian Teregarth have been stolen and are hidden somewhere in the medieval city of York.
“So, we are on the hunt to find brave champions to join the quest to solve the clues and find the eggs, battle foes and discover Merlin’s secret porthole to the domain of the noble King!
“Think Blackadder meets Horrible History on the streets of York for all the family to enjoy!”
Every performance of Knights, Dragons and Princesses will donate at least £2 from every ticket sale to support Frank’s Fund – a local charity that raises funds to life saving research into Ewing sarcoma, a rare bone cancer that took the life of a 14 year old boy who was close to the group at A Very Magical Adventure.
Lara added, “As Frank did, we want to find the light through the dark times, and offer an experience which brings excitement and playfulness to all who attend.
“We hope, in doing so, we drive awareness to causes like Frank’s Fund whilst providing joy and entertainment through the summer season and more.”
The full quest will last around 2 hours and is suitable for kids of all ages from 2 to 99 – dressing up is encouraged!
Tickets start at £16.95 and can be pre-booked online here.
