Fantasy Worlds Come to Life
Where can you visit Narnia, Hogwarts, Middle Earth, Westeros and the Forgotten Realms on the same day?

You might dive into a lot of books and spend the day reading, or you could visit Mannum on Sunday the 7th August.

Here you can step into medieval times or your favourite fantasy world. Mannum Showgrounds are hosting Game Obsession Expo, an all-age celebration of games, activities and obsessions.

The Ironclad Academy of the Sword will show reenactments of battle tournaments and the Master Carpenters will bring their giant Moat Perrier. Look over the latest games and toys, browse hand made homewares, chainmail armour and medieval items.



Dress as a knight or damsel and join in the live action role play. Take on some extreme thrills as you ride the Superhero, the Extreme Thriller and more. Children will enjoy the bungee trampoline, pony and camel rides.
