A rip-roaring medieval adventure!  

A huge favourite with the crowds and a fantastic family day out, ‘The Knights of Royal England’ return for their 10th anniversary at the Castle with a dazzling show and an epic display of jousting and horsemanship.    

Reckless and brave, skillful and fiercely competitive, the knights stop at nothing as they charge at full tilt at breakneck speed on their trusty steeds. Lances splinter as the knights take to battle from the saddle in some spectacular horseback stunts.    

Enjoy the pageantry, jeer or cheer for your favourite knight, join in the children’s parade, dragon parade, come in costume and be part of the spectacle.  Story-telling, strolling musicians, combat displays and a village encampment to explore makes for a magical medieval day out.
