Feast with Vikings at Kimberley Medieval Fest this July.

Ever enjoyed a cup of mead with a Viking? You are invited to sit down to a medieval feast this Friday, July 9 at the Kimberley Elks Club and do just that.

As part of the Kimberley Medieval Festival that weekend, things will kick off with a medieval feast of roasted chicken and pork, baked apples and more. No cutlery will be provided as one and all are invited to dig in, Viking-style.

“We encourage people to dress up in medieval clothing though it’s not mandatory,” said Michelle Forbes, one of the festival organizers. “Our Viking guests for the weekend will be there to mingle with the crowd.”

If you’d like to order mead to drink with the Vikings, you can order ahead by contacting Kimberley City Bakery or check out the Medieval Festival Facebook page.

All proceeds from the dinner will go to the costs of putting on the festival. Tickets are $50 and on sale now at the Bakery, Centex and the Elks Club.
