A banquet held within the great hall of a 15th Century townhouse to mark the official launch of the Loyal Supporters. The night includes a welcome by costumed staff, a medieval host/storyteller, welcome drink (mulled or mead wine), a medieval seated three-course meal (vegetarian options available) including complimentary drinks and accompanied by medieval background music.
We are also delighted to announce that we will have a guest speaker, door prizes and a raffle.
This is a one-off occasion to mark our first AGM and other weekend activities, so it’s an event not to be missed. Tickets for all of the above are only £50.00 and may be purchased by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Members may purchase tickets at any time, but due to limited seating, general sales will not be open until Monday 5th September, although non-members are encouraged to contact us to notify us if you are interested and to be added to a waiting list.
Medieval attire is GREATLY encouraged!!!

Monday 3rd Trip to Middleham
We hope to arrange a day trip up to the beloved home of Richard and his family. Much will depend upon the availability of transportation for those who may need a lift, so if you are interested and could either offer a couple of seats in your car, or would need a ride, then just let us know at the contact details below and we will attempt to accommodate as many people as possible.
