Try one of amazing action packed Jousting Experience Days which focus solely on jousting training. Dress in some light medieval armour and colourful costumes and learn to ride like the Knights of old.
Learn the mounted knight skills required to strike the dreaded ‘Quintaine’; the target that spins on impact, lance the ‘Gold Rings’ and spear the ‘Peasant’s Heads’! All from the back of your very own horse with your lance! Learn to use a broadsword and enact a choreographed sword fight and you can optionally add a session in longbow archery. No riding skills are necessary, this event is open to all!
Learn a choreographed broadsword fight straight out of a Film or TV series such as ‘Merlin’ or ‘A Knight’s Tale’ in pairs to perform to the rest of the group - points awarded for the most dramatic death scene!
