Finchcock's Court - An Elizabethan Dinner - CHANGE IN EVENT SITE Event date: February 8th, 2014
Hosted by Canton of Distant Shore - Great Village, NS
Event Last Modified: January 28th, 2014
 
Event details
This event is designed to be about eating a period meal as guests of the lord of an Elizabethan Manor House, our “Finchcock’s Court” and Lord Finchcock is our host.  Twenty-five guests are welcome at table with RSVPs which must include the gold needed to bribe for the best seats at table (pre-paid reservations only).

(This is a High Persona Event)
As it was also done in those times, servants were used to serve and take away dishes, refill glasses & goblets, and pass notes and messages about the hall. 

Entertainers were often hired to perform during a stately dinner and we are offering, for any wishing to apply at the manor, a supper for their songs. 

Like the servants, these folk will sit not at the table with Lord Finchcock’s guests but a table that will be set aside for the servants.  We will have room for 10-12 servants/performers at Finchcock’s Court.

While Table Guests will eat a variety of delicious period dishes, the Servants will have a far less fancy fare, with the additional left-overs from the Lord’s table (if any).

Head Steward:  Bob (Mistress Bess Darnley)
Chef de Cuisine:  Lady Mergriet van Wijenhost
