Knight on horseback

Experience the exhilarating spectacle of speed and skill as four legendary knights compete for honour and glory in the Grand Medieval Joust. See lances shatter, feel the thunder of hooves and hear the roar of the crowd as reputations are won and lost. Our fearless fighters and their magnificent horses will charge at each other at full speed in an unforgettable display of chivalry and sheer courage. Pick your favourite contender and cheer them on to victory – or console them in defeat.

This year, for the first time, each knight will represent a character from a historic myth or legend. Will you choose The Wyvern, The Wildman, Sir Lancelot or Jason of the Argonauts as your champion? Meet the mystical heroes as they are dressed by their squires and prepare to do battle!

As well as experiencing the thrills and spills of an authentic joust, make merry with a feast of medieval entertainments and treats. Immerse yourself in medieval life, listen to the minstrels' merry music and gasp at the antics of our fire-eating fool. Little knights can prove their bravery in hobby-horse jousts, test their arm at have-a-go archery and learn all about medieval armour.

Buy your tickets online before Fri 23 Aug and save 10%! Don’t miss your chance to get close to the most breathtaking action in history.
