The Abbey Medieval Banquet will be hosted at the Great Hall at St Michael’s College near Caboolture on Saturday 20th August 2022.
The Steward of the Hall, Sir Blair Martin, will guide patrons through an evening of feasting and entertainment, including music, pageantry and dance.
Doors open at 5:45pm. We ask all guests to please arrive and be seated by 6:15pm for the banquet’s opening procession. On entering the Great Hall guests will experience a traditional medieval ritual of ‘washing of the hands’ with scented rosewater followed by a glass of complimentary mulled wine.
Please note: Separate bookings will not be seated together as all seating is allocated at time of booking.
Tables are served into eight guests sections with four guests per side. Platters of food are placed in the centre to be shared – the medieval bread trencher being the hero of the table. Food is eaten with knives, spoons or fingers where appropriate.
The Medieval Banquet menu consists of 2 removes (or courses), each consisting of several dishes, plus a final course called an ‘issue’. The menu will include a broad range and sumptuous quantities of authentic medieval food including dessert.
Guests can note dietary requirements when purchasing tickets. In keeping with the Medieval experience, no further accommodations can be made for dietary requirements other than those stated.
The Medieval Banquet is a licensed venue. Wine, beer, cider and mead will be available for purchase.
