St Mary’s Guildhall’s Party like it’s 1617 Workshop
Learn about food, feasting and frivolities in the Tudor and Stuart era. Led by a facilitator, your group will learn about the preparations for the feast of King James I at the Guildhall in 1617. Students will explore herbs in the medieval kitchen, investigating their origins and how they demonstrated social status. They will also learn about banqueting, write their own banqueting menu with a quill, investigate social etiquette and learn a Tudor dance. The group will then discover the importance of heraldry by making your own coat of arms.
