BSL Interpreted Jousting & Falconry: Saturday 20 August 2022

This summer the BSL Interpreted Jousting Tournament returns, this year with the addition of Falconry. 

On Saturday 20 August, a designated BSL (British Sign Language) area within the Jousting Field will be available with interpretation of the event for those with hearing impairments and their friends and families to enjoy.

The Knights of Royal England will be entertaining visitors with exhilarating displays of action, stunts, falls and fights in an authentic arena complete with a Royal Box. 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. Choose which knight to support and then cheer them to glory.

On this day you can also be entertained by the falconry displays from Willow’s Bird of Prey Centre. The displays will last about 20 minutes and will happen twice a day. After the displays, you’ll have a chance to see these wonderful birds of prey up close and personal.


BSL Interpreted Jousting area opens at 2pm
Jousting tournament begins at 2:15pm
Jousting tournament finishes by 3:30pm

BSL interpreted falconry displays will also be available on the day at 11:30am & 3:45pm

The BSL interpretation area will be signposted and roped off from the general public. To gain access to this area please show your booking confirmation. Seating will be on the grass so you may wish to bring a blanket.

If you are visiting the Castle, the Castle is usually busiest in the afternoon on Jousting days.

Keep up to date with the jousting leader board throughout the season. View a gallery of photos on Hever Castle’s Pinterest.
