"THE HUNDRED YEARS' WAR"
TALK AND DINNER
SATURDAY 1st JUNE - 7pm for 7.30pm
£38 per person - talk and 3-course dinner
GUEST SPEAKER - Dr Janina Ramirez
We are delighted to be hosting another exciting evening with guest speaker Dr Janina Ramirez who will give a brief talk about "The Hundred Years' War", her recent TV series.
In her new three-part series on BBC Four, The Hundred Years' War, Dr Janina Ramirez explores the causes of the greatest and longest conflict in medieval history. This formative period in the histories of both France and England is full of exciting stories of kings, great knights, bloody battles and the cultural triumphs of this momentous conflict.
She will share personal insights into the making of the documentary, and talk about some of the highlights - including holding Simon Sudbury's head and handling the oldest copy of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. Janina will answer questions and meet the guests while you enjoy a culinary adventure.
England vs. France
A mouth-watering dinner will then be served, presented by Tim Matthews, Head Chef of The Carriage House Restaurant. Tim will offer two dishes for each course - one classic English and one classic French. Which will be more popular?
