The Cathedral of St. John the Divine will host Knightwatch Medieval, an overnight experience designed for children ages 6 to 12 on Friday, January 11th at 6:30 p.m. at the Cathedral of Saint 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 a scavenger hunt led by a court jester, celebrate with medieval dancing and singing, and create theme-based art projects including clay gargoyles and brass rubbings. At the close of the evening, a resident storyteller will lull participants to sleep under the arches of the Nave. The experience ends with a continental breakfast ending at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, January 12th.
Additional slumber parties are scheduled for March 22, May 3, May 24 and June 14.
Tickets are available for $135 per person. For further information or to purchase tickets please visit http://www.stjohndivine.org/departments_nightwatch.html.
