I went to the Medieval Banquet in Tower Hill on Sunday.
I'd love to say i went because I adore culture and live theatre, but the main reason is that my friend Tiina is an acrobat there so got us some cheap tickets.
She can get into tighter spaces than a daddy-long-legs. Her boyfriend is a lucky man.The idea behind is is that you get a meal, a live theatre show, some music, and most importantly - free beer and wine - in an actual real-life medieval banquet hall in Tower Bridge.
This is Tiina. God knows how she does it. I tried to do a forward roll once and got travel sick…
It's an excellent night, but for the price - £49.95 for an adult (don't worry, we paid nowhere near this…) you'd expect far less bland food and you're wine to not be watered down.
Luckily, they more than made up for it by forgetting to lock the props cupboard, as evidenced below. Evening ended with us being asked to return our bodices, or kindly leave.
The free bar had closed, so I of course choose the latter.
**Edit** A special thank you to my friend Chris from http://www.petographer.co.uk for taking all the photos and for letting me upload them. This is him below…

Thank you for your email.
Unfortunately we do not have any shoe boxes from the Magic Steps shoes; however I have attached to this email some photos which may be of use to you.
Please do not hesitate to contact us with any further queries and I hope you like the photos.
Thank you again for contacting us.
In my other life - the one wot pays the bills and keeps me off the streets - X Factor finalists The Reason 4 came to our office to talk about their new single Take It All. Check out the video!
While I know, logically, in my head that I don't fancy them, someone needs to pass the message onto my groin.
Check out the video of them serenading me in the street below, then tell me that you don't need me to pass you a towel to sit on…

"Thank you for your email regarding Magic Steps. I'm afraid that we stopped making this particular range a couple of years ago.
"We did this because we decided to concentrate on developing new styles.
"I know this is disappointing to you, but I hope you'll be able to find a style you like in our latest season of styles online.
" I have passed your comments on to our design team, who will take your feedback on board when planning future styles.
"Thank you for taking the time to contact us and for your interest in Clarks
"Kind Regards Kate Randall Contact Centre Agent KR/kr Our Ref: 001209569A"
This isn't actually very funny, because she took me a little too seriously. Now the Clarks customer service team think that I am mentally retarded. But on the plus side, they will be consulting me on future shoe styles.I knew I should have offered them some Kia-Ora
Unfortunately, they seem to have vanished off the face of the internet, and I can only find the following pictures, but alas, no advert for them on YouTube.
