Jousting at Knebworth Park

Archant

Spectacular action, stunts and fierce battles will be the order of the day when medieval knights in full costume gallop into Knebworth Park for for a two-day jousting tournament.

The display of mounted warhorses on April 8 and 9 is one of the most popular events in the stately home’s annual programme.

A spokeswoman said: “The audience can enjoy all the romance, excitement and pageantry of former times with a line-up of equestrian skills and hand-to-hand combat.

“There are two jousts in the course of each day starting at about 12.30pm and 2.30pm, subject to weather.

“The event features The Knights of Royal England who have more than 20 years’ experience and perform in an authentic jousting tournament arena with specially-built props, equipment, flags, a royal box and medieval tents.

“Children are included in the action and have the opportunity to get involved as part of the supporting ‘court’.”
