The year is 1595 and you are invited to attend the banquet feast of Sir John Lumley.Before the banquet starts the doors to the dungeon and guardroom are thrown open where wine, ale & mead can be purchased. To the sound of bagpipes you will be greeted with a friendly smile, but take heed to be well behaved or his Lordship’s Executioner will deal with you!

Armed only with a dagger and a bib you will be served five courses of delicious food.

Throughout the feasting the banquet maids will fill your goblets with mead and wine while entertaining you with songs, sketches and sing-a-longs.

At the end of the show the Chamberlain will guide you back to the 21st century to dance in the dungeon to our resident DJ.

Just a quick email to say thank you for allowing part of the cast of Kynren 2016 to take part in and enjoy one of your banquets.  Many of them had not been to Lumley Castle or to a banquet before so it was all a brand new experience for them to enjoy. And enjoy they did! Some even turning up in beautiful Ladies of the court dresses – it was a fantastic night and we loved every second. A night filled with merriment, fun and lots of feasting – superb! Many Thanks, Mrs Charlie Scott-King
