We are delighted to announce another very special evening to dine within the portals of Windsor Castle. You will also have the opportunity to attend Evensong within the Choir of St. George’s Chapel, to sit in the seats of the Order of the Garter, walk up to battlements and see down across the town, then to dine within the old Vicar’s Hall with a superb meal. The meal will be followed by a tour of St. Georges Chapel to know the inside story.
The full programme will be:
17.30 Attend Evensong in the choir of St George’s Chapel
18.30 Reception with some sparkling and canapés (optional - additional charge)
19.30 A three course dinner within the Vicar’s Hall with wine and coffee.
Henry VIII’s gate
You will enter via Henry VIII’s gate and go onto the parade ground to park your car. This is in front of the main entrance to George’s Chapel. You will then be given access through the private area of Tudor housing to the Vicar’s Hall. A part that is not open to the general public.
Built in the year of the battle of Agincourt in 1415, Vicar’s Hall is steeped in history. At the Garter Feast held on April 23rd, 1597 a certain playwright and his Queen met in this room to see a play that was about her father and his six wives. The Queen was of course Elizabeth the first and the playwright was a certain William Shakespeare. The high vaulted ceiling and the environment provides a unique glimpse into times gone past.
The costs are as follows (for members and their guests only)
