In 2017 Medieval Times Toronto announced a new storyline. For the first time ever, the lead role was filled by a Queen. Feminism for the win!
The show’s director, Leigh Cordner said the change to incorporate a female lead was made based in part on guest feedback.
The reimagined show celebrates Girl Power while also adding new costumes and music. Medieval Times Toronto’s original revelry is still a thrilling spectacle: horse parades, jousting knights, flight of the falcon and a fun cutlery-free feast.
