Hear ye! Hear ye! Ye olde planetarium is traveling back to the Middle Ages, so come enjoy an ale or a mead and celebrate all things medieval with us this November at Adler After Dark. (Costumes encouraged, but dragons must be on a leash!)
Don’t miss Poems While You Wait—who will compose epic poems for you worthy of song—or check out special presentations about Adler’s world-class collection of medieval astronomical instruments and talks on medieval cosmology, science, and culture. For the crafty among you, we will be building (and testing) our own model trebuchets and DaVinci-inspired machines. And no medieval celebration would be complete without drink, including special tastings by our friends at Brewery Ommegang and Wild Blossom Meadery, Winery and Brewery!
And be sure to regale yourself of the evening’s entertainment, including Irish & Scottish pub tunes by Character Fleadh, lively sea shanties by The Shanty Shipwreck Show, and medieval & Renaissance weapons demos from the Chicago Swordplay Guild.
Whether you’re a Targaryen or Lannister, knight or peasant, all are welcome to the sit on the iron throne and party like its 1399.
