Medieval Banquets in Nottingham

Medieval Banquet

The Galleries of Justice Museum will be the venue for a Medieval Banquet in Nottingham this Christmas with the Sheriff of Nottingham the host for your meal.

The unique venue of the Galleries of Justice Museum is the perfect place for a medieval banquet in Nottingham. The site was the original place where the Sheriff of Nottingham distributed law and order (hence the earlier name of Shire Hall) and the atmosphere of this beautiful building makes for an enjoyable evening.

Throughout the event you will be entertained with juggling, music from medieval minstrels, interactive comedy and the opportunity to visit the Sheriff’s dungeon absolutely free. The dungeon or oubliette, which has recently been discovered, was a pit in which prisoners were thrown and then forgotten about.

To add to the celebrations, people can dress as in replica period costumes as an optional extra to add to the fun.

The format of the days starts just before 7pm when the doors open and guests are welcomed with a complimentary Sheriff’s cocktail. Shortly before 8 pm after a visit to the Sheriff’s dungeon and the Robin Hood exhibition, guests are summoned to the 250 year old Grand Banquet Room for a four course meal and entertainment.

When the banquet finishes shortly before 11pm, you’re then invited to hit the dance floor for a good old knees up before the evening draws to a close at around 1pm.

Birds, herds and beautiful scenery was the focus on my Wildlife Photography Course at Sherwood Hideaway

When I was asked to spend my weekend at Sherwood Hideaway to take part in wildlife activities available there, of course I was only too happy to oblige.
