Music & Art at Trinity Cathedral “Medieval Feast: Robin Hood”

Snow and cold couldn’t keep 280 hearty souls from stepping back in time to dine with the folks of Sherwood Forest. What a fabulous feast put on by members of Trinity Cathedral, actors, musicians and a host of volunteers, all to raise nearly $12,000 for Music and Art at Trinity. Todd Wilson, the church’s Artistic Director, said these funds were the primary support for Trinity’s popular lunchtime “Brownbag Concerts.”

More than half the attendees came in costume, from simple cloaks to elaborate attire suitable for a king’s court. Executive Chef Steve Louzos and his team outdid themselves with the multi-course repast. Platters of Stilton-stuffed chicken, slices of “boar” (pork) loin, sausages with dried fruits and scrumptious cranberry walnut bread pudding were passed around among the revelers. There were crusty loaves of bread, too, donated by Breadsmith, plus pitchers of ale and bottles of wine. And don’t forget, this was all finger-food … no cutlery allowed, unless you brought your own dagger! Entertainment included singers, fencers and even a fire-breather! Everyone — from House Manager Dylan Dwyer to the saucy “tavern wenches” — kept in character to make it a fun and loud (“HAZZAH!”) event.

Perhaps the star of the show (sorry, Robin) was the fruit-bedecked boar’s head, which was marched in with a bagpiper and paraded around after dinner (it’s good luck to kiss the pig). Good lords and ladies, this bountiful, merry feast certainly doth lend itself to “Best of the Year” honors.
