Ruthin Castle provides a superb stage for hosting themed medieval dinners modeled upon the legendary feasts the Earl of Warwick (son of Henry VIII) held at the castle in the 16th century.
Revellers then assemble in the Presence Chamber for the partaking of bread and salt, age-old symbols of hospitality. Fully costumed Ladies of the Court and the Court Steward escort guests into the lofty Banqueting Hall where they entertain, sing (in both Welsh and English), jest and lead the evenings feasting with daggers and fingers accompanied by a tasting of mead*. Medieval themed weddings are also hosted at Ruthin Castle.
*Soft drinks, wine and ale are available.
Festive themed Medieval Party Nights are available throughout each December featuring a Banquet followed by a disco. Get further information about 2013's Festive event here.
Guests may wear everyday clothes, wear their own costume, or hire a costume from the castle by advance arrangement.
