Hester the Jester - Jester
Hester can run a medieval banquet on his own, providing foolery, music and song. He can meet’n’greet your guests whilst playing medieval tunes on the mandola, while they have pre-banquet drinks. He then leads them into the banqueting hall, where he sets up a mock court situation, complete with king and queen, or lord and lady, involving much pageantry.
He will wander around tables, joking, playing medieval type music and singing songs, performing comedy routines and improvising. At the end of the evening, he will produce a guitar (if required) and regale guests with more modern songs, encouraging them to sing and play along on percussion instruments which he will hand out.
He is also able to make announcements if required. The guests often dress in medieval attire. Medieval banquets can come in the guise of corporate, friend and family, or public events. He has performed these at castles, manor houses, hotels, marquee, town and village halls, churches and military establishments, including Dover, Herstmonceux, Tutbury, Ripley and Belvoir Castles, and the Natural History Museum. He has also set up banquets for children at primary schools during their lunch time.
As for banquets but without the ritual, unless required. Some people do actually have medieval banquet type weddings. He can sing an Elizabethan wedding song, written by one of Queen Elizabeth’s composers, George Campion during the service if required. Hester entertains both adults and children at weddings.
Usually, birthdays, wedding anniversaries or society balls. As for weddings but without the wedding song. This has included Richard Branson’s Knighthood receiving party at the Rooftop Garden Hotel in Knightsbridge, London.View similar acts:
