This summer 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.

Bring a blanket or watch the joust in style from the medieval spectator stands (see below).

Please note that 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.

New this year, there will be photographers at Jousting. They will be busy snapping away and if you’d like to purchase any photos taken of you just head to their website

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