A balmy medieval winter’s evening settles
So what happens when the sun goes down on a medieval day full of markets, after picking up that great new wooden food bowl that has been carved so beautifully, and all the furs and loom-woven pieces and the excitement of the tourney with its elaborate jousts and battles ?
The swords are sheathed.
The horses are groomed and fed after a day of jousting.
And the cannons are hushed.
Do the inhabitants sleep? Oh noooo nooo nooo!
The Medieval Carnivale Begins!
The visitors have donned their best gear – dresses swishing, cloaks swirling, children delightedly whisper to each other – ‘the fire twirlers are here with the Burning Dragon!”! Feet are tapping with the last strains of drums and strings still hanging in the air.
Our tummies already happily filled from the day’s feasting, and we can settle down on our benches and await with pleasure the scenes to come.
What happens at a Medieval Carnivale?
What do battle hardened horses do at night to play? How do the riders of war trained horses wind down after a day of action?
A gypsy tribe is settling down for the night, something is in the air… What is stirring away from the encampment that calls for a celebration?
Showcasing Medieval After-Dark Celebrations!
The stars are twinkling, the performers’ blazing sticks are twirling seemingly magically – intertwining with dangerous dragon! The rhythm, the beat and the tempo of a time where the music reflected a community’s way of life.
Next Tuesday’s post will be the first of a series highlighting the spectacle of our professional Medieval Carnivale Entertainment Team who will delight you for two hours! We trust you’ve got your tickets to the Festival!
