‘Greetings peasants of York!’
With those warm words, the Jester and sidekick Smedley announced that their home, the York Dungeon, is back in business.
The Clifford Street attraction has been closed twice after water got into the building, with the River Ouse rising as high as 4.4m on Wednesday.
But now the water has gone, the team have done a clean up, and the show goes on.
Here’s how they announced the news:
The Jester said: “We are pleased to announce that we are able to reopen the doors of the York Dungeon once again – as we bring to life the darkest, most murky and altogether unpleasant parts of Europe’s history.”
And Smedley added: “We’ve no more of that mucky water from the Ouse – which is a shame really because I could have done with a bath.”
During the closure, the Dungeon team took ticket-holders on free tours of York, as well as rearranging their visit.
