Regency Brighton comes to life with the Food and Drink Festival Banquet

Ninety diners dressed in Regency costume attended Brighton & Hove Food and Drink Festival’s last major event for this year - the Regency Banquet, held on Thursday 28 September in the stunning Banqueting Room in Brighton’s Royal Pavilion.

Guests were entertained by the Prince Regent, superbly played by actor Ellis Pike, and his witty quips and lively songs gave guests a full taste of the lavish parties held in the palace in that era.

However the main focus of the evening was the lavish menu, inspired by 19th century chef Antonin Carême, and each dish was accompanied by a fine wine provided by Banquet sponsor Hardys. The six-course meal was made largely from local Sussex produce, and created to an excellent standard by the sheer hard work and dedication of the catering students and staff from City College Brighton & Hove.

Festival Director, Melissa Love who organised this event said “The Regency Festival Banquet was created in partnership with the Royal Pavilion and City College. This is the second year that we have held the banquet and we are very proud of the popular and special occasion that we have created. It is very authentic and you literally feel as though you have stepped back into Regency times".

The Regency Banquet is the only fully-costumed event which takes place in the Brighton ’s Royal Pavilion and will feature on the BBC Holiday Programme later this year, introducing Laurence Llewellyn-Bowen to the delights of Regency Brighton, and on UKTV History next year.

Guests were each given a beautiful book called Regency Recipes by the Royal Pavilion Shop as a memento of the occasion, and dedicated festival followers can already register their interest for next year's banquet by calling 01273 207155 or register online at
