Medieval Christmas Banquets.

A couple of friends of ours are doing this at the Ironworks In Inverness this Christmas. It should be great fun and will include a meal and loads of entertainment.

The story is that Sir Thomas Randolph and his lovely wife ( she really is lovely - its ME) are holding a banquet to garner support for Bruce before Bannockburn. He wants to heal the emnity that exists between John Campbell and Angus Og Macdonald. in addition there is a Templar knight who is looking for a place to bring the orders treasurer away from the persecution of Philip IV of France. Merlin has advised Randolph that a tournament a plaisance is a good way for each household to come together in friendship.

There will be authentic fighting with swords and a ball and chain fight, there will be all sorts of shenanigans and silliness and then dancing in the ironworks til late.
