Video: Grand Joust returns to Warwick Castle

Take part in spectacular medieval rivalry on horseback as knights battle it out in the Great Joust at Warwick Castle this summer.

The thunder of hooves and the crack of lances return twice daily in the popular jousting tournaments at weekends throughout August, and there is even chance for children to join in the heated daredevil shows.

As the bravery of the knights is tested to the limits, young helpers are needed to add their skills across the 1pm and 3pm shows for the remaining weekends this month.

To sign up and get involved in the joust, or to buy tickets, visit the castle’s webpage.

As well as the horseback entertainment, visitors can enjoy eagle displays, Horrible Histories, entertainment from the court jester and chance to explore the historic grounds.
