Alresford Historical & Literary Society Founded 1966

Bishop de Lucy Commemoration Mediaeval Dinner

7.30p.m. Wednesday 15th September 2021

New Alresford was founded in 1199 by Godfrey de Lucy, Bishop of Winchester. As our contribution to the  Winchester “Heritage Open Days Festival”, with its theme of “Edible England, we will celebrate his memory with a mediaeval feast. With current restrictions this will need to be a Zoomed event – please get together for dinner with your choice of period food and drink; many recipes are available online, and King John’s territories at the time  included many fine wine areas of France, so there is plenty of choice. While dining there will be a brief address

about the fascinating bishop and we hope that it will be an enjoyable evening discussing our various menus, be

they potage with small ale or creatively aristocratic.

There is no charge for joining via the Zoom link:

Perhaps this will become an annual event – as Burns Night is to Dumfries then de Lucy Night can become to Alresford!
