It’s Time to Joust the Medieval Way

Mighty Medieval Jousting returns to Leeds Castle this Bank Holiday Weekend

This Bank Holiday Weekend immerse yourself in mighty clashes and thrilling entertainment as squires arm the knights in full plate armour, and four knightly warriors spectacularly show off their skills as they demonstrate Mounted Skill-at-Arms before taking part in an authentic jousting competition.

Fill your metal boots with Combat Displays, archery tournaments, firepower, and the ridiculously exciting trebuchet demonstrations; don’t miss the opportunity to watch the mighty medieval trebuchet shoot into the castle’s moat.

A truly thrilling day out for the entire family. Transport yourselves back to the Middle Ages and experience a whole host of themed activities from Children’s Mini Battles and Have a Go Archery to meeting a medieval surgeon.
