Elizabethan Banquets

From: £36.50

Come live like Lords and Ladies of a bygone age and experience a great night out at Lumley Castle’s award winning Elizabethan Banquet.

The evening includes: Five Course Banquet Feast, One Goblet of Wine and One Goblet of Mead, Entertainment by the Lords and Ladies of the Court followed by a Disco.

£36.50 per person


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.
