In Pictures: Medieval Entertainment @ Tower of London

June 06, 2016


We had a wonderful time at Historical Royal Palaces’ super Tower of London, as these fabulous pictures show. From Singing Monks to a Silhouette Artist, there was an awful lot of event entertainment for guests to enjoy.

We were hired by a large American company to help out on three separate events across the course of a week, with a variety of different entertainment themes. We love what we do and we like being given a challenge when it comes to hiring different types of entertainment for a party or corporate occasion, so we set to work and first up was this rather brilliant medieval banquet fit for all types of royalty!

  Guests were greeted by our fantastic lutist as they entered the Tower of London for the event; he regaled them with a variety of eclectic songs and tunes from the era and went down tremendously, with a whole host of guests desperate for a photo!

 Once inside, guests enjoyed a tasty three-course dinner and were able to be entertained with an old form of entertainment that always goes down well; our silhouette artist quickly and calmly cut out various diners’ portrait from a piece of black card before handing over the memento to the lucky attendee. The results are always uncanny and although we have no idea how they pick up the skill, we think silhouette artists make an amazing addition to any party.

  Incredibly, that was not all! We pondered which types of music would best embody a medieval event theme and although a harpist is always popular, we tried to think of something that wouldn’t be similar to the medieval band that would be appearing later in the evening. No, we thought there had to be something that would wow the crowd and be perfect for the full London experience. As such, we laid on some fabulous Singing Monks!

    Various guests were desperate for a photo whilst others were too fascinated to even move; they really do offer something that very few people have ever experience when it comes to event entertainment. Our lutist then returned with his band in full traditional costume to regale the party’s guests once more before it was all over. Another tremendous Historical Royal Palaces event and no doubt everybody was wondering what treats would be in store for the next occasion.

 Of course, you’ll have to wait until tomorrow to find out!
