Spring Jousting Tournament

29th April - 1st May

Join us on the South Lawn for a mighty jousting tournament featuring 'The Knights of Royal England'.

The weekend will be packed with action and entertainment, including falconry displays, archery, puppet shows, jesters and knights on horseback charging in the traditional tilt, and battling on foot with the mighty mace and quarter staff.

Families can try their hand at archery and enjoy ice creams and delicious hot food including pizza and burgers, all on the South Lawn against the beautiful backdrop of the Palace. Champagne and Pimms will also be served.
