Knightwatch Medieval Children’s Slumber Parties To Kick Off On May 30th

Second Season Of

The Cathedral Of St. John The Divine’s

Knightwatch Medieval Children’s Slumber Parties

To Kick Off On May 30th

The second season of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine’s Knightwatch Medieval, an overnight experience designed for children ages 6 to 12, begins on Friday, May 30th at 6:30 p.m. atthe Cathedral of St. John the Divine, located at 1047 Amsterdam Avenue (at 112th Street), Manhattan.

Knightwatch Medieval offers a blend of education, fun and fantasy under the roof of the world’s largest Gothic cathedral. The sleepover transports children and chaperones back in time to the age of storybook kings, princesses and knights. Within the walls of the candle-lit Cathedral, children will engage in an interactive play and scavenger hunt led by a court jester, celebrate with medieval dancing and singing, create theme-based art projects including clay gargoyles and brass rubbings, and participate in a child-safe broadsword workshop.  At the close of the evening, a resident storyteller will lull participants to sleep under the arches of the Nave.  Accompanying the kids and adult chaperones on their journey into the medieval past, the Cathedral’s current art exhibit, Phoenix: Xu Bing at the Cathedral, will add to the magic and make-believe.

An additional slumber party is scheduled for June 6th.

Tickets are available for $135 per participant. One adult chaperone must be on-site for every three children.  For further information or to purchase tickets please visit http://www.stjohndivine.org/families/nightwatch/knightwatch-medieval
