Good (& Dead) King Wenceslas
Give your guests the royal Holiday treatment by sending them to a majestic medieval banquet hosted by His Majesty, good King Wenceslas! They can enjoy the melodic sounds of the minstrels; marvel at the magic of the court wizard, have their fortune read by the soothsayer, laugh at the antics of the jester, or just rub shoulders with royalty. But things really start to get exciting when murder pays a visit to this festive occasion. The King is dead! Long live the King!. It’s an evening of royal belly laughs and medieval mayhem.
“Good King Wenceslas looked out,
On the feast of Stephen.
Where the snow lay round about,
Deep and crisp and— Urgh!” Thud.
