Thanks to a collaborative effort between the British Ministry and many unsung heroes, the recent reign of terror that labored its shores was defeated. The hate of Perniciem has fallen, with many of its members apprehended and prosecuted. Their definitive defeat caused the members of Ìonacht to disband and wither back into their shadows, unable to stand against such a grand show of force and harmony.
Thus, it marks the beginning of a Silver Age for the Magical Community. The desire to unite the magical and Muggle worlds is renewed. And, in the spirit of this very sentiment, the International Confederation of Wizards has agreed to form the Concordia Festival.
This triannual festival is a compilation of the magical world's most exotic events and attractions open to the muggle public, including, but not limited to, Wizarding and Quidditch tournaments, magical creatures and mystical cuisines. The Concordia Festival's Inaugural host site will naturally be the United Kingdom, in London.
Named for two famous men of Canterbury, one a detective and the other a playwrite, they have become an inspiration to the owner of the café. The café itself is themed around the arts and literature. All of the names of the dishes she serves are related to literature and the arts, and she has chosen quite the decor to make one feel as if they were in a nineteenth century literature novel.
It is located next to the Greyfriar's Lodge and across from The Old Brewery Tavern; there is a nice view of the Great Stour River from the outdoor patio in the rear of the building. It serves breakfast and lunch seven days a week. The main chef, the owner, has taken many courses in various cuisines, and is always adding new things to her daily specials menu. There is always something different and interesting to try at Reid Marlowe's.
