The Kings Joust

30 April @ 11:00 am - 1 May @ 5:00 pm


Come and See the Knights of Nottingham perform on the Historic Grounds of Holdenby House!

What could be more appropriate to mark the beginning of Coronation Week than two days of days of Royal Knights Medieval Jousting. Witness the Knights of Nottingham battle for victory amidst the thunder of hooves and clashing steel.

It is a show filled with sword swinging, gut punching thrills and anything can happen and often does with fantastic audience participation and comedy included.

Cheer for the White Knight or maybe boo the Black Knight as Knights and Horses combine for a hard hitting Medieval Jousting Display on Holdenby’s Tilting Plateau.

You will also be able to enjoy the Historic Sport of Falconry with spectacular flying displays and talks about this ‘Sport of Kings’ by our resident Icarus Falconry.

The House itself, now the home to the Lowther family and once the largest house in England and Palace of Charles I, will be open both day’s 12-3pm (last entry 2.30pm) so that everyone can enjoy the magnificent historic interiors.


After all that cheering (or booing!), you will need some  Medieval refreshment so visit The Old Stableyard Tearoom and enjoy some Medieval Fayre. Further details to follow.


Choose your Knight and enjoy a fun packed day out for the whole family!
