A Knight dressed in armour galloping on a horse, with lance in hand.

Experience a spectacle of speed and skill as four of the most masterful knights in the kingdom, mounted on their magnificent steeds. Choose your champion and see who is victorious in this colourful display of chivalry and courage. Surround yourself in pageantry and marvel at falcons in flight. The living history encampments will take you back in time, where you'll be kept entertained by the court jester and merry musicians. Budding knights can enjoy their own hero moment as they test their bravery in the hobby-horse jousting.
