Ring in the New Year with the lords and ladies of Medieval Times. The evening begins with the famed Medieval Times experience. You'll be treated to pre-show hors d'oeuvres and can explore the hair-raising Museum of Torture as you arrive. At show time, settle in to enjoy a four-course banquet and cheer for your favorite knight. The chivalrous warriors compete in jousting, swordsmanship, thrilling hand-to-hand combat and displays of extraordinary horsemanship. After the show, medieval times give way to modern times with a DJ and dancing, party favors, a champagne toast and balloon drop at midnight. After your night of partying, restore your energy with a continental breakfast. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
Jane Austen published only four books during her lifetime, yet today there are several hundred published works that have used her characters, novels, and biography as inspiration. Sequels, prequels, and reinventions have been written for nearly every one of Austen’s published works.
New to the list is the addition of the “monster mash-up”: adding zombies, vampires, and even sea monsters to classic Austen text. Is this trend helpful or hurtful to Jane Austen’s legacy?
In this evening’s moderated panel discussion, Austen scholar Tara Wallace joins authors Seth Grahame-Smith, Ben H. Winters,and Regina Jeffers, as they talk about Austen the author and why her works have endured and inspired through the years.
