Time

11am-5pm

Location

Old Sarum 

Suitable For

Everyone

A man in full knight's armour riding a horse with face armour.

Experience a spectacle of speed and skill as four of the most masterful knights in the kingdom, mounted on their magnificent steeds, battle for good or evil.

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.
