Bigger, better, bolder

“We’re going bigger, better and bolder than ever before. Hundreds of wannabe Jon Snows, Tyrion Lannisters, Daenerys Targaryens, Khaleesi’s, the Amazon woman- Brienne of Tarth, Merlin or other creatures of the night will descent on ‘Cape Landing’ this summer to follow the dark knights of doom at the event. It’s going to be a MCQP like never before. Who will you be or will you come and cast a spell on them all?” says Ian McMahon, Director of MCQP.

Visitors can expect a production of dark forces, mystical creatures, Game of Thrones characters from the time of Merlin, a gathering of knights, kings and queens, royalty, warriors, blood thirsty animals, monsters and other, dark, demented creatures.

Conjouring magical entertainment

DJ and event organiser, Candice Heyns, joins the team of organisers’ this year after touring Europe as a DJ performer, assisting in arranging some of the biggest events in a variety of European countries, and providing knowledge on the latest international trends.

“We’ll conjure up the great songs of Fire and Ice and the best DJs from far beyond the western reaches of the great wall. Do your research on all things dark in order to decide on your outfit – of knights and warriors, of creatures of the dark ages or from spells out of Merlin’s own book,” says Heyns, executive project manager of MCQP
