In this week’s Blog: Upcoming Community Events from Mead Drinking to Movies in the Park, Focus on Our Community Partners & Our Radio Ad Hits the Airwaves!
June 26, 2017
Did you know that North Harbour sponsors and supports over a dozen local Community Events and groups? We are a major sponsor for some of the biggest Community Events Brisbane has to offer, from the upcoming Abbey Medieval Festival to the Burpengary Christmas Carols, both of which attract thousands of visitors each year.
It is important to us to be a part of the local community and sponsorship is one way we can give back to the community which supports us.
The Abbey Museum of Art and Archaeology http://abbeymuseum.com.au/ has been our community partner since the inception of North Harbour. The museum team and ours have worked together on our proposed Heritage Precinct which will preserve and showcase the important history of the North Harbour site.
We are the major sponsor of the Abbey Medieval Festival https://abbeymedievalfestival.com/ which will take place over one awesome weekend, July 8th and 9th, and is one of the biggest annual events in the Brisbane area. The Festival is a recreation of the hubble and bubble of medieval life right down to the food vendors and stalls. The Festival offers a plethora of medieval activities across the weekend starting from Friday night including authentic re-enactment camps and jousting to falconry and even a knighting ceremony!
Partake of the sizzling meats and fine mead, and leave with the taste of history on your lips and your appetite for an authentic historical and personal experience satisfied. Lots to do and see for young and old, visit https://abbeymedievalfestival.com/ for more info. We’ll bring you more info on the Festival in next week’s blog.
Another way we try to give back to the community is to hold our own Community Events. The next one in our calendar is going to be a biggie so save the date – Saturday September 16th – for our Spring Fair. We’re planning a Movie in the Park, fireworks, food trucks and heaps more so make sure you plan to be around for that. The best way to receive reminders about what’s happening at North Harbour is to sign up for our email and SMS updates and find us on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/northharbour/.
