A feast fit for kings

THE Geeves residence in Primrose Sands was transformed into Castle Geeves for a viking and medieval-themed feast to celebrate the 60th birthdays of Lance Geeves and Gary Edmunds.

The celebrations were held on 8 February, with 80 guests enjoying a seated feast on a 25-metre-long table.

Felicity Geeves, Mr Geeves’ wife, helped organise the event and said the general theme was based around vikings and a medieval setting.

“The men loved the television series Vikings and wanted to bring out their inner viking and the majority of the guests also got into the theme,” she said.

Activities on the day included feasting and dancing, as well as a photo opportunity with a prop of a castle drawbridge that was crafted from empty cardboard boxes.

“There was merriment and full stomachs – we ate eight legs of lamb, four legs of venison, 10 whole chickens and vegetables,” Ms Geeves said.

“It was an amazing evening that was worth all the planning, building, crafting and cooking.”
