More than 180 people turned out to the banquet ” dressed in gowns or as knights and jesters ” at York Mill on November 2.

Entertainment included traditional music by The Ferrymen and soloist Karina McRoberts, displays of swordsmanship and general merrymaking by the masterful House Darksun and a spectacular fire show by Michael Speranza.

A medieval feast was served, including rustic breads supplied by Pert’s Pantry, and managing director John Langton said that no one went away hungry.

‘York Mill wishes to extend many, many thanks to all who contributed to the banquet,’ Mr Langdon said.

‘From friends of The Mill, who assisted with catering to all the wonderful guests, whose enthusiasm and flair added so much to the ambiance of the evening.’
