Tudor treats

One of the North East’s best loved venues has unveiled a programme of Tudor treats for the coming weeks.

On Friday 13 and 27 April and 10, 11 and 26 May, four-star Lumley Castle Hotel, Chester-le-Street, is turning back the clock to 1595, with its famous banquets - giving diners and partygoers a fun-filled night, Elizabethan-style.

On arrival at the castle guests are led to the dungeons before being piped into the opulent Baron’s Hall and seated on benches for dinner, which is served by Ladies of the Court and eaten with a dagger instead of cutlery.
