Caldicot Castle.

Last Saturday saw Dischromatics Ltd's (the company that I work for) annual outing - this time to a medieval banquet at Caldicot Castle!

The night was fantastic with traditional food, drink and entertainment.

Here are some photos with brief descriptions:


This is Louise and me at the beginning of the night in the bar area just after the draw bridge entrance. We went into the guards room from here to finish off our drinks. Is that Henry VIII behind us?

This was the guards room where we were entertained with traditional music. I cropped the picture wide to show the coat-of-arms that were decorating the walls.

More merriment! This time upstairs in the great hall where we dined.

Me and Louise in the great hall. Louise is drinking mead from a small pottery goblet. The large jug contained red wine. Note the bibs we had to wear as we were going to have to use our fingers to eat the food and get messy!

This wonderful looking Welsh dragon adorned the wall in the bar.
