Medieval Educational Events

 

The Educational branch of Golden Gryphon Medieval Entertainment and Catering will come to your school and supply a feast and an interactive play. Lady Adele will weave a path of medieval life. Children will learn the roles of knights, squires, ladies and friars. You as the teacher will be placed on a throne at the High table taking on the persona of King or Queen. The meal will consist of golden herb basted chicken, fresh bread, and glazed carrots served on platters. For dessert children will have delicious gingerbread shields  while sipping grape juice. The table will gleam with stainless steel ware but there will be no cutlery in sight, as hands make wonderful utensils.

During the feast we will engage your senses so you can truly envision what life was like in the Middle Ages. After the repast you will join in a round dance, and try on Knights armour. This two and a half hour long event, including meal and presentation is available for the price of $15.00 per student (taxes included). Well mannered parents are encouraged to attend for the same cost and the good news is: teachers are free.

If finances are a major consideration in booking, please talk to us for an alternate plan.

“Antje, you ‘outdid’ yourself! Wow! We were so impressed. You created and provided an absolutely memorable and educational learning experience for my students. They will never forget ‘The Feast.’ Thank you for your excellent service and attention to detail. I will be booking you each year for as long as I teach Grade 4. ”

So wonderful to compare different civilizations. Hands on experiences will stay with them long after they’ve forgotten facts. Well done, high quality costumes and props.

The Golden Gryphon provided a fun interactive and hands on experience to learn about historical material in a fun and engaging way!I would recommend this program to anyone looking to “spice up” their social studies program!

The students had an amazing time. Everything is always so organized and entertaining. Kyla’s comment, “Everything was excellent, but the chicken was very excellent!”
Sherry-Lynne KirschreAldborough
An absolutely phenomenal program! Highly interactive and engaging. It was wonderful to see the students so interested in learning. The multi-disciplinary approach enticed all students. (ex. Art- hieroglyphics, physical activity of the chariot, building the architecture, gathering the food!) So many skills were presented. The costumes were also a special part of the entire experience.

The students had a great time. They loved trying on costumes and riding in the chariot. It was a great hand-on learning experience. Thank you for a memorable workshop!
Vicki CranSouth Plympton
My students look forward to this presentation all year! The hands on learning cannot be replicated in the classroom. After this celebration day, I can then invite the students to launch an investigation about a civilization which piqued their interest. It gives the students a frame of reference and an authentic taste of history!
Rebecca WilsonRosedale
This program is certainly one of the highlights of Grade 4 for our students. What they learn in one day from your program is amazing and couldn’t even be done in 6 weeks at school! The students learning on this day is so engaging and hands on. We look forward to your return next year. Thanks for a great day!
