Organisers James and Jan Pearson said: "The banquet is not only a fundraising banquet for the new museum, but will launch the 'Friends of the Museum' campaign.

"The battles themselves should be spectacular with over 200 re-enactors and living history experts from the ECWS expected to take part and give demonstrations. There are a number of fun items for young children and archery for those who wish to give it a go, together with a Hog Roast, Stovie and Pie stalls and a Refreshment Tent.

"The Banquet is themed and the menu has been researched to give that 17th century experience. Tickets for this are however limited."
