THERE will be plenty of spectacular action, stunts, fierce battles and warhorses at full gallop at Knebworth House tomorrow (Sunday) as the Knights of Royal England take up arms for a medieval jousting tournament.

The event, one of the most popular in the stately home's annual programme, guarantees audiences all the romance and pageantry of days gone by, with a line-up of wild action, hand-to-hand combat and equestrian skill.

There are two jousts in the course of the day starting at 12.30pm and 2pm - subject to weather.

An estate spokeswoman said: "With more than 20 years experience, the Knights of Royal England Company performs in an authentic jousting tournament arena with specially-built props, equipment, flags, a royal box and medieval tents."
