Fairwarp WI celebrated its 91st birthday in style with special royal guest Henry VIII. Tony Harris regaled members on how he got into playing Henry VIII at Hampton Court and now Warwick Castle. His amusing anecdotes and insights had everyone laughing. After his amusing and enlightening talk he retired to don his costume. He returned to the Tudor banquet in full regalia and to the sounds of Tudor Court music.
Members had got into the Tudor spirit with some wearing full Tudor dress and others with Tudor headdresses. Fairwarp Village hall seemed transformed back to the 14th century. We drank wine from jewelled goblets, ate a spread of meats, salad and bread and finished with small sweetmeats. A splendid way to celebrate a birthday!
