Set in the magnificent Castle House, not usually open to the public. Music with 15thC Finger Buffet. Truly a fitting tribute to Richard III.
Not a cocktail party, not a fete gallant, not even a Festival Lunch, but an offering of 15thC food and music by Festival Director John Bence and friends. The menu has been carefully researched from ancient cookery books such as the Forme of Cury and includes such delights as mushroom pasties, leche fryed and Lombard date slices. The programme also features music for recorders and spinet. The number of guests is very restricted to maintain the intimacy of the occasion. We invite you to this gastronomic feast in a unique setting, but DO BOOK EARLY.
