Summer Jousting Events:

July: 14 & 15; 21 & 22; 28 & 29 
August: 11 & 12, 18 & 19; 24 – 27

The annual Summer Jousting Tournaments begin at Hever castle on 14 and 15 July.

The Knights of Royal England will be entertaining the crowds with exhilarating displays of action, stunts, falls and fights in an authentic arena complete with a Royal Box.

Join Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn and the Knights of Royal England in the procession to the Jousting arena.

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.

Bring a blanket or watch the joust in style from the medieval spectator stands, available for a small cost on a first-come, first-served basis. Then choose which knights you support and cheer them to glory.

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


The Jousting Field Opens at 1:00pm.
Henry VIII & Anne Boleyn Arrive at the Castle at 2:00pm.
The Jousting Tournament Commences at 2:15pm.
