On Sunday, June 16, Knebworth House is hosting its annual medieval jousting event.

There are two scheduled jousting displays, at 12.30pm and 2.30pm, depending on the weather.

Following their Easter jousting exhibition, the Knights of Arkley will once again demonstrate their skills in hand-to-hand combat to the delight of the crowds who are encouraged to cheer and jeer their favourites.

The turrets and towers of Knebworth House will provide a spectacular backdrop to the costumed knights on majestic warhorses galloping at full tilt across the arena in a fantastic display of horsemanship.

For even more family fun, the Green Dragon Bowmen Archery Club, which is based at Knebworth Park, will be offering visitors the chance to try some archery.

This costs £2 for six arrows. Full instruction will be given.

The jousting is included with the regular Knebworth Park & Gardens admission.

Entry is £10 per person over the age of three.
