Feel the thunder of hooves and hear the clash of lance on steel armour at Lincoln Castle as four brave knights take part in the Sport of Kings.

A two day, Medieval tournament at Lincoln Castle of full contact jousting for the honour of Lincoln. Four brave and fully armoured Knights, mounted on horseback, will compete in a Joust of Peace each day.

Meet the Knights, choose your champion and cheer him on. Together with musicians, surgeon, armourer and a cast of Medieval characters, this weekend brings together some of the best jousters in the country with a full supporting programme of Medieval activity throughout Lincoln Castle.
