Medieval banquet to mark 800th anniversary of Dominican Order

Wed 20th Sep

To mark the Autumn Equinox and 800 years since the Dominicans Order was established, we'll be hosting an authentic medieval banquet on Friday 22 September served by monks and town wenches! Arrive in medieval costume and enjoy a delicious communal banquet 'with thy neighbour'.
 
The Dominican Black Friars are delighted to welcome honourable dignitaries, townsfolk of Newcastle, urchins and reprobates to take a step back in time for a sumptuous feast in Blackfriars ornate Banquet Hall, built by our brothers back in 1239.
 
The candle-lit hall which houses long convivial oak tables and chairs will be draped with wall hangings and tapestries and decorated with candles and fruit. You will feast on pottage and pies, roasts, cheese and pudding!
 
Flagons of ale and fine wine will be available to purchase, to wash it all down, served by our esteemed friars and town wenches. Entertainment will also be provided on the night and guests who dress in a medieval costume will receive a free drink.
 
Arrivals at 7pm; Taxis from 10pm
