Wednesday, 1st July 2009, Medieval Banquet

Doors open 19:30

We would like to invite the MPEG/JVT/ITU-T VCEG delegates to join us at a Medieval Banquet on Wednesday, 1st July 2009. The regal banquet takes place by flickering torchlight in the vaulted cellars of Ivory House, just a stone's throw from the Tower of London and Tower Bridge. Accompanying King Henry VIII are fighting knights, strolling players and dancing wenches which provide a magical medieval pageant for your delight. After the show, there is music and dancing, or you could take a two minute walk to Tower Bridge and enjoy a panoramic view of London by night.

Tickets for accompanying guests can be purchased in advance at the following rates:

  • £50 per adult and,
  • £30 for children (under 14 years old).
