Medieval Clash of Steel

Add to Planner

Immerse yourself in the 15th Century to see a Tournament of Knights competing on foot with swords, bows and poleaxes.

This is the Age of High Chivalry, but tensions exist and although the Tournament is supposed to be a contest of peace,  the event is a powder keg of simmering rivalries. In 1464 there were simmering rivalries between the Knights and their households – with some of whom King Edward was pursuing a conciliatory policy and many doubt the loyalty of some.

See the hand to hand combat and archery competitions the watchful eye of the Knight Marshall whilst surrounded by living history and the sights and sounds of the medieval period.

A weekend of treachery, royal diplomacy, weapons, combat and competition.
