In the beginning!

We started holding the Medieval Festivals when the kids were studying Comparative Civilizations in High School. They brought their classes here for 'educational' fieldtrips.

We did demonstrations of various activities and had a banquet. The possibility of hands-on crafts and experiences as well as the chance to eat ‘medieval style’ was a real hit with the students. One vegetarian asked all her table-mates for their bones so she could have the pleasure of throwing them on the floor.

The first banquets were held in an unfinished basement room and were a tight fit for forty or more people.
