Stonor Park will be transported back to the Middle Ages for a spectacular Medieval Jousting weekend on 22-23 May.
The weekend will see the Knights of Royal England demonstrate an epic display of Medieval Jousting with knights in full armour who will stop at nothing, charging at each other on Andalusian geldings in an attempt to strike their opponent’s shield and knock them out of their saddle.
Families will also be able to enjoy spectacular horseback stunts as well as foot combat with medieval weaponry, falconry displays, 15th Century Black Powder Weapon Displays, Living History Displays, Agincourt History Theatre, a working medieval forge, archery, an Armoury for young knights to (safely) equip themselves plus mouth-watering food and medieval costume competitions.
Why not dust off your chainmail and be part of the fun and enter the Medieval Costume Competition? They are looking for Kings and Queens, Crusader Knights, Robin Hoods, Maid Marians, Court Jesters, Friar Tucks and English Longbowmen. There will be a prize of a bottle of mead for the adult in the best medieval dress and a wooden sword and shield for the best dressed child each day.
A Cannon crew will organise medieval firepower demonstrations twice a day using everything from medieval handguns to full size cannons that were of the style used during the Battle of Agincourt.
Plessis Armouries will be demonstrating making early 15th century armour throughout the weekend using a working forge and giving a series of talks about styles of armour and how they changed.
The Past Presents will tell the story of the Battle of Agincourt during the course of each day at their interactive theatre where lots of audience participation is required and History Interpreters covering the period from 1400-1450 will bring the time of the Battle of Agincourt alive to visitors.
Tickets are priced £16 for adults and £13.50 for children aged 2-15. Children under 2 free via https://www.stonor.com/events/medieval-jousting/ Tickets must be purchased in advance from the link above in order to comply with Government regulations
