Robins and Chaffinches Host a Merry Medieval Banquet

Robins and Chaffinches welcomed the Lords and Ladies of Anston to their Merry Medieval Banquet.

After weeks of planning and preparation, the day had finally arrived. On Thurs 17th November, Robins and Chaffinches welcomed nearly 100 guests to Greenlands Castle.

The day before had been spent working in the sweaty kitchens peeling, scrubbing and chopping the vegetables to make the potage for the first course. The menus had been planned and written out, the tables had been laid, with special care and attention given to the Lord’s table.

The Lord arrived and the festivities commenced…

We read prayers to begin the banquet.

Some children read poetry about castle life and visits from friendly dragons.

The Lords and Ladies of Anston were served delicious food by very hard working servants.

The Lord and his guests were entertained by jugglers, jesters, acrobats and dancers too.

Finally, the children sang a beautiful version of Greensleeves. The Lord thankfully gave all the servants and entertainers his thumbs up and they settled down to sleep by the fire.

Everyone had worked really hard to create a very enjoyable banquet.
