image for Jousting item typeEaster Joust! – Knights of Middle England at Hedingham Castle & Gardens

Jousting, Sun 12 - Mon 13 Apr 2020, £10-£42




Bayley Street,
Castle Hedingham,
C09 3DJ


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.

Henry Hotspur the UK’s only Rolling Jousting horse for visitors to try their hand at this fantastic skill! Henry is a full-sized rolling horse that thunders (or rides sedately for little ones!) down the list carrying the rider past authentic Jousting practice targets. From very young riders with Mum or Dad sitting behind, to adults riding solo, Henry Hotspur can carry an adult in full medieval armour so come and try your hand!

Plus, there will be have-a-go archery with the Norfolk Longbowmen, period musicians, Maypole dancing and the ever-popular birds of prey.
