The celebration consists of two parts. First, there is a memorial Mass
to honor the author's request.
The attendees then march, led by the musicians into the auditorium for
a party featuring food and drink from Chaucer's time. At the end there
are a series of readings in Middle English.

March to Party, food and fun, were you there?.
As in Chaucer’s time--no tea, coffee or chocolate.
But we have mushroom pasties from a medieval recipe, and dark bread and
cheese. Our libations are apple cider and, of course, mead.
