From Our Editors

The Medieval Banquet takes place on the site of the land gifted by King Edgar the Peaceful to his thirteen knights of Portsoken. Legend has it that this was in recognition of them having performed three acts of bravery, one above ground, one below ground and one in the water. The land was previously used by the knights to battle for honour, exercise and the entertainment of the king, and after the inheritance they continued to respect and uphold the charter of the land. Their descendants gifted it to the Priory of the Holy Trinity and a hospital was erected on the site, dedicated to St. Katharine, a 4th century saint who was martyred by the Roman emperor Maximinus. Guests are invited to join in the revelry of the medieval times with an indulgent feast, raucous atmosphere and lively entertainment, and on each evening, knights assemble for an elaborate display of sword fighting as an homage to their history. The music is is drawn from the Medieval and Renaissance courts of Europe and covers the period of the 12th-16th centuries, bringing to life 800-year-old musical manuscripts that have long been the domain of specialists and enthusiasts. The Medieval Banquet is situated in the atmospheric location of Ivory House in St. Katherine Docks, which is named after the hospital sited here 900 years ago.

Great night out. I went with my partner, we sat on a table of 8 other strangers. We all got on well due to the atmosphere of the place. You are encouraged to sing along and get into the spirit of a 'Ye olde banquet'. The entertainment while we ate was very good too.
