King Arthur’s Great Halls
King Arthur's Great Halls
Tintagel is the natural centre from which all things in connection with King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table should radiate. King Arthur is a worldwide asset and it is fitting that at Tintagel, his birth place, something should be in existence which acts as the point to which thoughts of people can turn, and where the necessary inspiration can be disseminated to enable King Arthur's ideals to be a living force for all time.
To many, Tintagel is a hallowed spot, and the increasing number of people who visit it each year solely because of its association with this wonderful early King, testify to a desire to keep his ideals before them. The world would have been poorer in the past without King Arthur, and something less noble today or in the future.
Building on the halls commenced in 1929, being attached to Trevena House in Fore Street, Tintagel, a home that was originally built in the 1860s. Work was completed in 1933 and the official opening was at Pentecost the same year. It is possible to show within the building in a dramatic way, scenes which have been prepared and which refer to the principle symbolic events in the story of King Arthur, such as the choosing of Arthur to be King - the gift to him of the great Sword Excalibur - the presentation to him of the Round Table - the achievement of the Sangreal - the passing of King Arthur, etc.
