£5,000 donation from the Warwick Court Leet Beer Festival
It was announced in June 2019 that this event has raised £5,000 for the Lord Leycester Hospital which will be put towards the conservation of our Medieval gem. Money that was raised from the event will also be used to fund our "Reveal the Seal" campaign, which is raising money to restore a seal commemorating King James I Banquet back in 1617.
On Friday 16th and Saturday 17th February, the Lord Leycester hosted the Beer Festival in the Great Hall. With the event sold out, hundreds came and enjoyed a wide variety of specially selected ales and ciders, such as Happy Valley, Backyard Gold and Bee Sting Cider. The Warwick Mayor honoured us by opening the event and sampling a few of the ales.
We would like to say a huge thank you to Warwick Court Leet for their donation and for sponsoring and organising this event and don't forget they will host the same event in 2019 - 15 and 16 February!
