Our New Year Begins!!

Regular readers may well remember that 'we' run our event schedule based on the financial year rather than the calendar one....and with that in mind the new year is just around the corner and this weekend sees the start for the new programme of events.

So what can you expect this year??

Pretty much the same as last year as it happens, a mixed bag of this and that culminating with an attempt to expand and improve on the Christmas event, thus putting this back to the pinnacle of our event year as it used to be. As such, an amount of the experimental work over the year will be going towards not just trying to improve our understanding of things, but also trying out new ideas and planning for the Christmas event, which is our best opportunity for both trialling new ideas regarding food at the Court of Henry VIII as well as showing them off to you all.

This weekend coming will be a fairly simple affair with little in depth experimentation as we shall be having a film crew round working on another Historic Royal Palaces project, there is a need for them to record fairly basic processes without any of our "mucking about" getting in the that's what they'll get....the usual broad mix of roasting and boiling, chopping and grinding and the guys doing what it is they do best...talking for Britain.

Easter, which looms large at the end of the month, will be a different affair....can't give details just yet as I'm still waiting for confirmation, but I'll let you all know ASAP. The very next weekend though (May holiday weekend) , the Palace has the theme of love and romance to tie in with the Royal nuptials on Friday 29th..yes it's an extra bank holiday, so lucky us, we get to work!! As yet, the only thing I know that we'll be doing is that Dave has been asked to make something romantic in idea what, but I'm sure it'll be for the rest of us....the jury is still out there, not really got any ideas yet, but hey, it's a month away yet!

After that, we should settle down into a more regular and sensible plan of attack for each event, as soon as things are settled planning wise, I'll let you all know.

That's it for now.
