FortiTech helps bring history to life

Technology and medieval festivals may seem like strange bedfellows, but as you will see from the Rook in our logo, we are big fans of all things medieval (lets face it we are geeks), which means that we are hugely excited to announce that FortiTech are one of the sponsors of the upcoming Abbey Medieval Festival. The Festival is being held from 2-4 July at the Abbeystowe, an open field near the Abbey Museum of Art and Archaeology in Caboolture.

The Abbey Medieval Festival and Guests of Honour Raffle are the 2 major fundraisers for the Abbey Museum in 2021 and the Festival itself is back with a vengeance after being forced to cancel in 2020 due to COVID pandemic.   FortiTech is helping bring history to life by donating technology to the museum and providing a money can't buy experience as one of the raffle prizes.

To help make the gate entry process for visitors a quick and easy one FortiTech has donated a powerful Leader 575PRO laptop, monitor, keyboard and mouse to the Abbey team to use - because no one wants to get in the way of hundreds of people looking to get their fill of braised brisket stew and mead before grabbing prime seats for the jousting tournament! 

We are also providing the third prize in the Abbey’s online raffle, the prize is a jam-packed Saturday of fun:

Saturday VIP tickets for two people to the Abbey Medieval Festival. Enjoy exclusive parking close to Abbeystowe, priority entry at 8:30am, and exclusive access to the VIP area where our hosts will serve you authentic food and drink. You will also have plenty of opportunity to immerse yourself in the festival experience, enjoying all the activities, encampments, animals, battles and more! 

On Saturday night, you and a friend will join one of our most legendary knights, Sir Justyn, at an exclusive dining experience at the Stag Inn. Sir Justyn will regale you with stories of his many campaigns and share insights into the life of a knight. Indulge in a delicious feast washed down with a selection of fine ciders, ales or meads or a number of non-alcoholic beverages. You will enjoy the sights and sounds of the festival as the day turns to night, campfires crackle, and the trebuchet launches fireballs through the sky towards the castle.

The FortiTech team are looking forward to dressing up and attending the festival ourselves, exploring the markets and sampling possibly way too many Medieval delicacies!
