In Pictures: Medieval Entertainment at Tower of London

February 09, 2016

Tourists love London. And who can blame them when we have a building on the north bank of the River Thames which goes by the full title of Her Majesty’s Royal Palace and Fortress of the Tower of London. It’s 2016 and the Queen still has a fortress to which she puts her name. Amazing! What’s more, this fortress is a fantastic events venue in London and is perfect for medieval entertainment. So perfect in fact, that we provided just that last week.

Our clients were celebrating the release of a Game of Thrones game and wanted a little medieval entertainment to tie in with the theme of their corporate event. Strictly speaking, George R. R. Martin’s fantasy epic isn’t set within the medieval world but strangely enough, Westeros entertainment isn’t really a thing unless you count the cutting of heads and gruesome events like the red wedding. But our client wanted a little less of that and a little more of fun, vibrant entertainment with incredible costumes.

 Say no more! We provided some utterly brilliant circus entertainment in the form of a few acrobats, whom we dressed as court jesters for the duration of the event. Such a sight is truly a marvel to behold – jesters in the Tower of London in 2016!? – and they went down an absolute storm, whilst a similarly dressed contact juggler entranced those who stood to watch. There’s something mystical about a contact juggler and the way their act works. They’re truly impressive to watch and highly recommended if you’re on the search for unique entertainment for a party.

  And that wasn’t all! We didn’t stop at one or two, but instead provided three lutists (or lutenists or lutanists according to Wikipedia) in traditional dress. They all got along extremely well and played many songs you’ll have no doubt heard before but with an enchanting twist. Game of Thrones theme tune anyone? Lastly, but by no means leastly, we provided a fortune teller (not pictured) because whether you’re a Stark or a Lannister, it’d be pretty great to know what was coming.

 We really enjoyed our time with Historical Royal Palaces once again and cannot wait to return! If you are interested in medieval Game of Thrones entertainment or something completely different then be sure to look around the website and get in touch using the links below.
