The Knights of Royal England are well known for presenting one of the Country’s most popular Jousting Tournaments which recreates a late 13th Century Joust.
The real Medieval Tourney in this period may have lasted 3-4 days. In the timescale afforded to us when we recreate this spectacle for you, we are able to pick out the highlights, the action bits, the clashes, the wonderful horses striking out at full gallop and the excitement and the drama, without losing any of the pomp and pageantry. During each day of our Tourney we condense all this into two action packed 45 minute Tournaments.
Entertainments on each day will also include:-
Local food outlets and concessions will help to make it a fantastic day out with fun and enjoyment for all the family.
