Twelfth Night Menu

Come and enjoy a sumptuous 12th Night picnic on the grassy lawns, under the spreading trees!

We hope to match the lovely setting, so put all your medieval gear on show and hide your mundane gear (eskies etc).
On Saturday, we will be providing lunch, an afternoon snack and the evening meal.
On Sunday, we will have a morning snack and lunch.
Bring your picnic rugs, cushions, baskets and feasting gear and jugs (or bottle covers) for your drinks.
