August 19 2020 | Castle History

The annual Summer Jousting at Hever Castle have been running during August 2020 and now an extra date has been added.

The Knights of Royal England will also be entertaining the crowds with exhilarating displays of action, stunts, falls and fights in an authentic arena on Friday 21 August 2020.

Battling it out in the saddle and on foot in one-to-one combat, the valiant knights will then compete for points to find this season’s ultimate champion.

Surrounded by 125 acres of beautiful ground and award-winning gardens, historic Hever Castle provides a picturesque setting for a fantastic day of jousting.

Bring a blanket to watch Jousting at Hever Castle from the two acre field or watch the tournament in style from the medieval spectator stands. Then choose which knights you support and cheer them to glory.

Spectator stands (Sold Out for all dates) are available for pre-booking at a cost of £25 for a stand, with occupancy in line with current government guidelines. For more information or to book call 01732 865 224 or email [email protected]. Bookings must be made by 3pm the Friday before the event (Thursday for Friday events)

Some new safety measures for Jousting at Hever Castle will be in place and the popular procession with Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn and the Knights of Royal England from the Castle Forecourt to the Jousting arena will not happen in 2020.

Families can also enjoy the 125 acre stunning gardens at Hever Castle, the recently reopened play areas and the historic Castle, the childhood home of Anne Boleyn.
