Unto the populace of Lochac does Mordenvale extend its invitation to join in on our 2nd Annual Rhythm & Brews Tourney and Feast.
Come along for a Rose Tourney to honour the time old court of love in a spectacular St Valentine's boast of chivalry and prowess.
Settle in for an evening of entertainment from the bawdy to the harmonic - this year the Grogs wish any who may to challenge last year's winners, the Morris Dancers.
Be refreshed by period beverages of the alcoholic and non-alcoholic varieties while feasting in true Mordenvalian style.
Go to sleep in a dorm environment or camp beneath the beautiful Central Coast stars; awaking to a satisfying cooked breakfast to be had while you peruse the wares from our Merchants.
