What's On

Gather round as fearless fighters and their magnificent horses will charge at each other at full speed in an unforgettable display of chivalry and sheer courage. Each knight represents a character from myth or legend – The Wyvern, The Wildman, Sir Lancelot and Jason of the Argonauts. Who will be your champion?

As spectators cheer their knight and merry music fills the air, immerse yourself in the medieval encampment and meet characters from the past. Watch falcons soar in the skies above, or gasp and giggle at the castle Jester.
