Enjoy an immersive evening of entertainment, mouth-watering delights and an enchanting atmosphere at the Abbey Medieval Banquet.
The evening of authentic medieval food and entertainment begins with the traditional ritual of hand washing with scented rosewater. Our Lord Steward will guide you through the manners and customs of medieval banquet dining, while our friendly volunteer servers deliver heavenly dishes of medieval food to share.
Under the protection Staraya Ladoga, the guard of our banquet hall, spend the night feasting, drinking and being merry while our dancers, jesters and musicians take you on an adventure into history.
Following the ceremony of the High Table, the first of 2 removes is served. A remove, or course, consists of several dishes both savoury and sweet. The dishes are placed on platters in the centre of the table and shared between guests. The final course of the evening is called an issue and consists of dried and fresh fruit, nuts and cheese.
