6:30pm - 9am
Knightwatch Medieval is a series of imaginative overnight experiences designed for children ages 6–12 and their adult chaperones. This sleepover program offers a unique blend of education, fun and fantasy under the roof of the world’s largest Gothic cathedral. Guests will be transported back in time to the age of medieval storybook kings, jesters, princesses and knights. Within the walls of the candlelit Cathedral, participants engage in an interactive play and scavenger hunt, learn period dances and make clay gargoyles. A swordplay workshop (with safe foam swords) introduces young knights and warrior maidens to the fun of conquering foes. At the close of the evening, the whole group rolls out their sleeping bags on comfortable cots and falls asleep to the tales told by our resident storyteller under the protective arches of the Nave.
