After many years of research involving the city archaeologists, the UK’s foremost food historians, various ancient manuscripts and help from Durham University’s Institute of Medieval and Renaissance Studies, Blackfriars Medieval Banquets are now widely regarded as the most authentic of their kind. They’re also great fun!
The banquets take place in the candle-lit Banquet Hall where you might feast on pottage and pies, smoked fish, roast meats, cheese and patries washed down with flagons of ale and fine wine served by our esteemed friars and town wenches.
Attending a banquet
Blackfriars hosts a number of medieval banquets throughout the year – please check our events page for details of forthcoming events.
