Excitement is brewing about the Tavern Revel

British Library Medieval, Additional 27695, c. 1330-40 The next Thamesreach Revel will focus on the pleasures (and perils) of the medieval tavern.

Afternoon activities will include:

A chance to try several period dice, card and board games.

A talk on brewing.

A tasting of (modern) beers and wines that approximate some of the flavours of ancient and medieval drinks.

The Thamesreach minstrels will perform several songs for our entertainment.

There will be a┬ádemonstration by the shire’s fencers of how to survive a dagger attack.

These will be followed by a potluck feast and dancing.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

There is also a competition to provide the Thamesreach Tavern with an inn sign. Entries can be in any flat material and approx 30x30cm to fit the blank sign board.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Please bring any of your recently completed projects or works in progress for the Show and Tell A&S display.

The revel is on March 19 at Hargrave Hall. See the events page for further details.
