Talk on Bromsgrove's 821-year-old Court will offer some 'Leet' entertainment

LIGHT will be shed on the 821-year history of the Bromsgrove Court Leet at a special talk.

The presentation by Neil Beaumont is the latest to have been organised by the Bromsgrove Society and takes place at the town’s Methodist Centre at 7.45pm next Tuesday, March 17.

Court Leets were prominent in England and Wales from the 13th Century where the lord of the manor would claim and exercise feudal rights over his serfs and tenants.

Today Bromsgrove Court Leet plays a more ceremonial role in town life, taking centre stage on Fair Day to carry out assizes where it ensures the ale, flesh (meat), bread and leather is of a sufficiently high standard for the people of the district.
