Imbibing ‘the medieval spirit’

Trobades Médiévales, Perpignan

Take a ‘corne de vache’. Add a touch of troubadour, a hint of Hypocrace, and a dash of daring from dancers, bien déguisé. Stir in copious cuillères of courageous chevaliers and costumed cavaliers, along with Catalan and Celtic curiosities. Mélange with music from medieval instruments. Sip slowly, savouring the ambience of yester year…
