The 29th Wail

September 1st to 3rd 2017


Mediaeval Banquet

Royalty sings for the commoners
The banquet is now a firm tradition of The Wail and serving a four course meal to 250 people is quite an achievement, which for the small army of helpers starts at 9am Saturday morning. The most visible sign is the roasting of the pig on a spit over an open fire. To make the evening event more exciting we have a tradition that each table sings for their supper. The Lord and Lady of the manor in traditional dress preside over the proceedings along with a top table of dignitaries, also in traditional dress.
We would like as many people as possible to don mediaeval dress as this would add to the occasion. You can bring your own costume or attend the mediaeval costume workshop in the main marquee on Saturday. This is free for anyone to make their costume under expert advice or to hire a costume with a small donation to charity.
