Blackthorn Productions is a Guelph based company that specializes in medieval education and entertainment. Our purpose is to dispel common misconceptions about the middle ages. We endeavour to do this through the use of "living history presentations." Our programs include festivals, live theatre, educational programs, workshops and customized presentations. Blackthorn Productions provides a complete, fun filled family oriented experience. Blackthorn has been educating and entertaining young and old for 13 years and has been expanding it’s horizons to include theatre and film projects as well as Stage Combat workshops for the public, theatre companies and high school drama classes.
