The Knights of Royal England return to battle it out at the annual Hever Castle Jousting Tournament. Spectators will be treated to a thrilling show as the brave knights compete for points to find this season’s champion. Witness spectacular displays of action, stunts, falls and fights in an authentic arena complete with Royal Box.

Jousting is taking place on the following dates:

15 & 16 August
21 – 23 August
28 – 31 August

Please note we’re operating in a different way to normal with a maximum capacity. Some new safety measures will also 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 this year.

Keep up to date with the jousting leader board throughout the season.
