The Pictish Olympics

Pictavia will be putting young warriors to the test as we try to find out who has the skills to survive in Pictish Angus.

Entrants will be transformed into Pictish heroes and heroines before competing against each other for the title of our Olympic Champion 2010. Contests will include:

- Archery
- Tug-of-war
- A scavenger hunt
- Kubbs (a game played with throwing sticks)
- Building a model roundhouse
- A quiz

The Pictish Olympics will run on 24th July from 1.30pm until 4.30pm, and are suitable for ages 7 - 12. Pre-booking is strongly recommended. For more information, call us on 01356 626241.
