Seven Hills students plan medieval feast

Students, teachers and parents of Seven Hills Middle School will present their 13th Annual Medieval Feast from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday in the Stone Hall of Miners Foundry Cultural Center.

After months of studying knights, castles, feudalism and the church, the students will present a hands-on simulation of life during the Middle Ages.

Each student had to create a costume. Dressed as lords, ladies, monks, priests, peasants and merchants, the seventh-graders will begin the walk from the school to Miners Foundry Cultural Center at about 9:15 a.m.

An authentic feast will be celebrated. Students will savor a medieval stew served in a trencher and fruit pies served by their loyal supporters (their parents) dressed as peasants. The festivities will continue with medieval dancing mastered in the students’ humanities classes.

Students have designed personal and class coats-of-arms to be hung in the Great Hall. Hanging from the wooden beams will be individual and class heraldry banners, and covering the windows will be student-produced paper stained glass.
