Medieval Feast 2017

– February 18th, seating promptly at 6:30 pm
St James Parish, Lothian MD
Tickets go on sale December 30th.
The year is 1053 AD. It is the time of MacBeth in Scotland. While the Mad King rules the Feast, the Queen is haunted and the Witches conjure. We will take liberties with both the Bard’s version and true history so no one is safe and everyone will have fun. Only the food will be truly authentic.

Enjoy a little history with a side dish of humor. Shake off the snow and wintry doldrums and wear your favorite Medieval period finery (plain clothing allowed, too, if you must). Be prepared to enjoy numerous dishes prepared using traditional ingredients of the period. Just as at a great feast hall where each person supplied their own kit, we suggest that you bring your finest period dining utensils, plates, soup bowl, mugs, goblets and napkins, candles (column styles stand easily on the table – if you bring tapers, bring candleholders, as well.) Place settings can be provided, if necessary.
Entertainment will include musicians, perhaps a story, and always a good time. Traditional Dancing after dinner. For additional information please email president@cssm.org. Advance tickets only, purchase tickets online at http://cssm.ticketleap.com . Tickets are $30, additional online fees apply.


New and renewal hardcopy (pdf) membership forms are now available on the Membership page, for those that prefer sending in a check. Please remember that you must renew by the last day of January or you will have to use a new membership type and will receive a new membership number.
