Colchester Oyster Fayre
The Fayre is back to it usual June dates this year. NANMA are venturing forth with the usual rogues and reprobates and to support the Oyster Fayre. Our medieval camp kitchen will be manned by the 'Kitchen Witches' who will enchant you with proper medieval cookery from the 14th century book 'A Forme Of Curry', which has absolutely no korma/or biriani related products (before you ask). There are also lots of activities for families, from the kiddie joust (big kids welcome to) to some schooling with quill and ink. For the less focussed the local squirrels are also very so entertaining, bring some nuts. For information on the venue and location please follow the link in blue above.
Did you know: The Colne oyster fishery dates to the Roman era and appears in the Doomsday Book. The borough of Colchester obtained rights to the fishery under the provisions of its Royal Charter granted by Richard I in 1189. The oysters obtained from the fishery are known as "Colchester Natives" (the native oyster, Ostrea edulis).
