Labour Weekend 2023

*** Bookings now closed for this event***

Come and join us at Braythwayte Manor on the northern shores of Lake Rotorua for up to 3 days (Friday 20th to Monday 23rd October) from your favourite century. 

This is a relaxed 'Living History' encampment with no set timetable. Each day starts with sunrise and ends when you decide it should with breakfast, lunch and dinner somewhere in between.

Bring your A&S projects, swords, armour, bows, instruments and games and enjoy the company of other like-minded folk.

In keeping with the living history theme, all food will be prepared in the medieval kitchen and cooked over the open fire or baked in the wood-fired breadoven. The event is fully catered with delicious cooked breakfasts, generous lunches with freshly baked bread and a cooked evening meal. Hot and cold drinks and snacks are also included.

This year we are also offering a self-catering option for those who would like to set up their own encampment and provide for themselves (Above ground fires only, firewood will be provided free of charge)
