Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th June / Jousting Tournament. The Knights of Royal England at Sherborne New Castle. The Knights of Royal England are well known for presenting our most popular jousting tournament which recreates a late 13th century joust. The real Mediaeval Tourney in this period may have lasted 3-4 days. In the timescales afforded to us when we recreate this spectacle for you, we are able to pick out the highlights, the action bits, the crashes, the spectacle of the wonderful horses striking out at full gallop and the excitement and the drama without losing any of the pomp and pagaentry. During each day of our Tourney we condense all this into two action packed 45 minute tournaments. Fantastic fun and enjoyment for all the family. Opening Time: 10am – 4pm. Tournament times: 12.30pm and 3pm PRICES :In advance: Adult £9 • Children (5-15 years) £4.50 • under 5 years Free • Family: £22.50 On the day: Adult £10 • Children (5-15 years) £5 • under 5 years Free • Family Tickets: £25 * Admits two adults and two fee-paying children.
