Hallowmas at Harrowgate Heath


Saturday, November 3rd, 2007

“Double, double, toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and cauldron bubble…
…By the pricking of my thumbs,
Something wicked this way comes.”

For those goode folk who are not faint of heart, a sumptuous Feast will be prepared to accompany your Hallowmas evening revelries. We challenge you to try our tasty Treats. Tantalize your taste buds with our Tricky little dishes. Tuck yourselves in at our tables…if you dare!

The Feast is scheduled to begin approximately 6:00 p.m. Limit of 50 spots available, so please reserve early! There will be off-board space available. For the comfort of our guests, there will be a 30 minute repose between removes so you may enjoy some entertainment.
