Montekristo Estate seemed to be a portal into a past realm last weekend as JUGS Malta and Island Hotels Group treated their clients to an evening of merriment and mirth at Scripted Tales, an authentic medieval fair followed by a party to remember, the organisers said.
Exclusively catered and managed by Island Caterers, Montekristo provided the perfect set-up for the lavish medieval themed fair. JUGS Malta, local event management and teambuilding company pulled out all the stops and completely decked out the venue to the last noticeable detail! Guests were greeted by knights on horseback as they ventured down the ‘Vjal’ that realistically conjured up the atmosphere of the middle ages, from the quirky wooden stalls serving authentic food, straw strewn floors, the venue’s resident donkey, as well as the impressive team of animators perfectly kitted out as jesters, monks, fortune tellers, black smiths, peasants, armoured soldiers, nobles and even an alchemist truly made the event memorable.
The detail was not only noticeable in the venue set-up, Island Caterers put forward a menu fitting for the medieval event, with thought behind each dish relevant to the theme on the night as well as costumes sported by the waiters and bartenders married perfectly with the theme.
Local percussionist extraordinaire Dru Mayor and Elisa treated guests to a ‘medieval’ percussion show that provided for a perfect symphonic transition from the medieval fair to the rocking after party.
“We have been in the business for a while now and work closely with leading local Corporations as well as Destination Management Companies. With the industry being a small, intimate community here in Malta, it means that we all need to work in collaboration! For this reason we believe in the importance of nurturing our relationships and always enjoy getting together to let our hair down and have some good old fun.” Josef Gafa`, Director at JUGS Malta
“Island Caterers has been at the forefront of the local catering industry for many years due to its flexible and original product offering. With the help of Jugs Malta Scripted Tales allowed us to move away from the typical uniforms and reception setup, transporting MonteKristo Estate into a mediaeval experience while treating our customers to a party with a difference! Island Caterers have recently signed a management agreement with MonteKristo Estate adding this venue to the extensive list of exclusive venues catered by Island Caterers. “Raphael Cauchi, Executive Director , Island Caterers Ltd.
