Jousting & Medieval Living History Village
Sunday 17th June 2018
Can good triumph over evil? Skilled horsemanship and stunning, heart thumping, sword swinging, gut punching thrills will enthrall visitors to Rockingham Castle on 17th June.
Medieval Jousting is once again brought to you by the Knights of Nottingham, and anything can happen! Exciting displays of swordsmanship, pike drills and skill at arms combat, will all be before you as you witness the Knights’ battle for supremacy amidst the thunder of hooves and clashes of steel.
Gripping performances of bravery involve the audience, enticing them to become involved. Children to grandparents are encouraged to ‘boo’ the dastardly deeds of the Black Knight, to ‘cheer’ the chivalrous actions of the White Knight and be ‘tickled pink’ by the humorous antics of the drunkard knight.
After all the excitement, visit the Oxford Household living history village where craftsmen display their skills, the jester entertains with jokes and tomfoolery, fire eaters mesmerise and storytellers weave tales of mystery, magic and legend.
The Castle will also be open to explore as well as our gift shop where a variety of toys and gifts are available. Our licensed tearooms offer a takeaway service, the restaurant will be open for light lunches or you may want to spread a blanket and have a picnic. The gates and tearoom open at 12 noon with the castle opening at 1pm. Entertainment begins at 12 noon with the jousting commencing at 2.30pm.
