Eventgoers are asked to provide their own lunches and snacks, as the event will not be providing lunch. BUT… the Debatable Lands is proud to provide the Kingdom’s first FEAST in more than a year!

Our experienced and talented feast cook, Signora Benedicta di Venetia (formerly Lady Alethea Cowle) is cooking her final event in the Debatable Lands before sojourning to University. This feast is 2 years in the making, and promises to be spectacular!

We will be feasting outside under canopies (due to Covid protocols), so dress warmly. But you will not want to miss this! Pre-register today! We will likely sell out!
