There was a surprise in store to crowds who flocked to The Dorset Seafood Festival today when they found themselves being serenaded by traditional Elizabethan lute music out side The Weymouth Heritage Centre in Trinity Street close to the quayside.

Dave Allan, accompanied by Kevin on the Lute, who runs the Weymouth Heritage Centre explains in this short video how important seafood was in Elizabethan times and why the Queen Elizabeth decided that the people of England should be eating fish three times a week.

If you’re at the Seafood Festival tomorrow why not drop in and see the exhibition of Elizabethan Banquets in The Heritage Centre and take a listen to Kevin’s lute playing.
