Medieval Madness 2021 at Kiwi North is now unfortunately CANCELLED.
Sadly, and after much deliberation, we have made the call to cancel our Medieval Madness event, scheduled for this Sunday 31st.
With the recent positive COVID case in the area and the wide area of possible exposure we feel this is the responsible action to take.

We simply cannot risk the well-being of our community, the event stakeholders, club members, volunteers, staff and our organisation with so many unknowns at this time. We wanted to make the decision early enough to save the expenses and travel of all of those involved.

Yet again this cancellation is another COVID first for us but we look forward to our Kiwi North Easter Sunday Family Fun Day , 4th April.

The Museum, Kiwi House and Heritage Park remain open as normal, 10am to 4pm daily.

Stay safe everyone and look after each other.
