In the welcoming atmosphere of our colourfully decorated Village Hall, enjoy the history of the tiny south Northamptonshire village of Grafton Regis through food from the eleventh to the twentieth centuries.

Each course represents an era in Grafton's amazing history.  

Some of the historical highlights:

  • Edward IV married Elizabeth Woodville, the White Queen, in the village in 1464.
  • Henry VIII visited Grafton frequently throughout his reign, transformed the Manor House into a palace and added the epithet Regis to the village name.
  • The Dukedom of Grafton was created by Charles II in 1675.

The fun begins at 7pm on Friday September 29th 2017.

The cost is £20 per head, payable in advance.  All profits will be divided between the funds for the maintenance of the Village Hall and of the Church.

 To book, or for further information, please phone Kathy on 0791 009 2132 or email keith.harry@btinternet.com
