image for Jousting item typeEaster Joust! – Knights of Middle England

Jousting, Sun 21 - Mon 22 Apr 2019, £10-£42




It’s jousting season once again and the grounds of Hedingham Castle are set to ring to the clash of steel on Easter Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday – a medieval spectacular you won’t want to miss!

The astounding Knights Of Middle England return to the Norman Keep for a weekend of stunts and chivalry as the evil Black Knight and his trusty fool wreak havoc against the Earl of Warwick and his noble entourage.

An awesome display of saddle falls, drags and rearing horses awaits, surrounded by a bustling arena full of craft stalls, a range of food and a host of themed entertainment.

NEW for 2019! Have you ever wanted to try your hand at Jousting? Make sure to visit Henry Hotspur will be paying a visit to Hedingham Castle this Easter Bank Holiday weekend! Plus, there will be have-a-go archery with the Norfolk Longbowmen, period musicians, Maypole dancing and the ever-popular birds of prey.

With craft stalls, a variety of food vendors, donkey rides, coconut shies and the Castle Tavern, it’s a full day of excitement, involvement and thrilling spectacle for the whole family!

If you’ve never been to a jousting event at Hedingham before, you must get there over the Easter weekend – be the first to see the knights in action in 2018 and set the tone for a whole season of medieval shenanigans!
