Suitability: All ages
Cost: £6.25 per child*
*Guided tour of the Castle and access to the Keep not included.
Authentic and thrilling, this will be an exciting, educational day, giving pupils a chance to see and experience life at the Castle in medieval times. Before the main jousting tournament, children will be able to see how a squire helped dress his master in a harness of armour, followed by a spectacular combat display. There will also be a medieval encampment to explore, storytelling and juggling displays.
The Knights of Royal England will then take to the Joust arena, in a breath-taking show of skill, bravery and horsemanship. As well as cheering for their favourite knight, children will see some bruising encounters and spectacular falls. Great entertainment and historically accurate!
Elements of the Joust event are appropriate for schools who are also studying The Tudors.
Public performances of the Joust will be held on Saturday 1 – Sunday 2 July 2017
