Ralegh 400 Tudor Banquet

Costumes welcome.  Cost:  £30

We encourage as many as possible to dress in Tudor style where possible. Costumes may be hired from Glad Rags at Semley 078015592904 or 01747850101, or make something from your dressing-up box, or buy from The Mad Hatter, Yeovil 01935 471545 or online.

We offer a fun event, with live Tudor music, Tudor Dancers, superb food from the Chef at the Eastbury Hotel appropriate to the Tudor Period when Ralegh was alive. (He preferred that spelling of his name).

The VIP Guests will be announced by a fanfare as they enter the Great Hall, and will be seated at the top table to look down on us ordinary folk.

Your food will be served on bread “trenchers” as they did then, as we can’t afford pewter or silver platters. We will not, though have hunting hounds in the hall to devour your leftovers!

Fingers were the “cutlery” of choice, as forks had not been invented by then, you will be provided with a knife. However we can “time-warp” some forks for your use at a charitable cost to you of just One Pound Sterling.

Wine will be available at the Hall.

Sponsored by Sherborne Twinning Association, supported by Sherborne Town Council, the Eastbury Hotel and Waitrose Community Matters.

Proceeds to the Yeatman Hospital and the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Charity.


Tickets and information available from Sherborne TIC and Winstones Books
