Event Description


To celebrate the 400th anniversary of King James I’s visit to Warwick in 1617, we will be serving a Sunday lunch that is fit for a king!

The King came to Warwick in 1617 to visit his Chancellor Sir Fulke Greville, owner of Warwick Castle and member of the Privy Council and to mark the occasion we are teaming up with Shakespeare’s England, Warwick Castle, St Mary’s Church, Warwick Racecourse and a number of other Warwick venues.

Pre-lunch drinks will be served in the Judges’ Drawing Room where you can work up an appetite and view a portrait of the King himself. This is an opportunity not to be missed if you want to view the The Old Shire Hall.

Please call 01926 736350 or email oldshirehall@warwickshire.gov.uk to book your place

Tickets for a two course Sunday lunch in the surroundings of the Great Hall cost £25 per person. For more information, including menu choices, visit the event page here or contact Harriet Lund, Head of Events, on 01926 736350.
