One of the most popular events at the Blackburn Manor is our feasts. We have a variety of special occasions where we invite groups to meet and enjoy the evening together. The evening includes both dinner and a fire outside in our courtyard.
We hold a wide spectrum of feasts, anywhere from a handful of visitors, to hundreds at a time. We mostly do them at the Blackburn Manor and in the Blackburn Academy Extension down the street.
Currently we hold feasts for the following purposes and occasions:
We personally cater the meal for our school feasts. We provide two appetizers, two drinks, roast chicken, rolls, one sweet and one savory salad, cheesecake, ice cream, and one more dessert! (vegetables need not apply) We put the clurichaun (house elves) of our European counterparts to shame!
Tickets to these feasts are sold through our social media channels, and we can host up to sixteen students per event. Students may also reserve a spot by calling us ahead of time.
