Castle, home to the Pennington family for 800 years, and home
to the historical
Tom Foole (Tom Skelton).
Each year Muncaster hosts the International Jester Competition
to determine who will be the Honorary Jester of England and
Official Foole of Muncaster for one year. Paolo Garbanzo won
this prestigious honor during the 2007 Jester Competition
and will return to Muncaster to emcee the 2008 competition.
Although he will relinquish his title of Jester of England
at the end of the competition, Paolo will always carry the
title Fool of Muncaster. He is also the first and only American
to be an official Jester for an English castle. (Take THAT
