What a great Wolf Hall event we had, showing off the wonderful venue, excellent catering and of course the memorable live entertainment from Viva Live Music.
Guests arrived at the fabulous Middle Temple, to be treated by a jester (here with Lord Richard).
Guests were taken into the wonderful Middle Temple Hall; a medieval building, where they were treated to renaissance background music, while wenches served canapés and drinks.
The serving wenches in ‘Court’ uniform enhanced the experience for the guests.
A message arrived that Henry VIII and his new wife, Anne (Boleyn) were due to arrive. Lord Richard ensured all of the guests were taught the rules of court.
Guests rehearse curtesies at court.
Then Henry and Anne arrived!
Henry and Anne select suitable courtiers to join Anne’s new court. Then one of the new courtiers tastes the food, to check it isn’t poisoned.
The King invites everyone to share the sweetmeats from the recent hunt.
Guests were treated to singing from Renaissance times – including “Greensleeves”
Guests mixed and mingled with the royal couple
Whilst background music continued and canapés were served
Our jester entertained guests – and the royal couple
Anne serenaded Henry, whilst the court musicians accompanied her.
This was a truly interactive experience for guests: with background and featured entertainment. Mix and mingle, and of course, selfies!
We hope we have captured some of the essence of this wonderful experience. If you would like to discuss this themed event please contact us.
