Drinking In The Domus - a Memory of Beaulieu.

In the late sixties a school friend Eric and I were employed one summer at what was then The Montague Motor Museum. We worked for the catering department.

In those days on occasion the Beaulieu Estate held medieval banquets, they took place in the great hall on the first floor of the Domus. One morning we were tasked with collecting a large jar of mead from the vinery and taking it up to the banqueting hall. When we got this huge jar of mead upstairs we were handed flagon jars to decant the mead into. When we asked how this was to be achieved we were then handed a length of garden hose. When management came back an hour later to check on our progress they found two very drunk fifteen year olds lying on the floor!
