Medievil feast at Gainsborough Old Hall over Easter
Visitors will discover quirky and inventive medieval recipes from Easter-time at Gainsborough Old Hall on Friday, March 29 to Monday, April 1.
The medieval cooking event will utilise Easter traditions, dating from the Middle Ages. The fires will be lit and a pot of aromatic 'stew' simmering in the background as costumed characters prepare various dishes throughout the day, alongside pre-prepared delicacies. You can even try making them yourself using the free recipe sheets available.
Theresa Workman, collections access officer, says: "Visitors can find out what ingredients medieval cooks used before many of our modern food items were discovered. They will see that all sorts of surprising alternatives went into the Easter feast. There's also great fun for the whole family with the special 'have-a-go children's area' in the West Wing where youngsters can ice a delicious 'jewelled' cake and make a Tudor paper doll to take home."
10am to 5pm (last admission 4.30pm). Normal admission price applies, but all extra activities are free. Visit www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/ gainsborougholdhall and www.gainsborougholdhall.com
