Jousting & Medieval Tournament Week *

Tuesday 26 - Sunday 31 July, 2016

Under the shadow of the mighty Castle, experience the thrill of the renowned Arundel International Jousting Competition, as revered knights from around the world gather to test their chivalry and skill at mounted combat in full plate armour.

Set within an authentic medieval style encampment, with the knights and men-at-arms of Raven Tor, Distant Trumpets Story Teller and the musicians of Rough Musicke, this is a unique week-long tournament.

The thrilling tournament will be accompanied by have-a-go archery and a host of craft displays and entertainment; this really is the highlight of Arundel Castle’s events calendar.

Please note - for have-a-go archery a lower age limit of 8 years of age applies and a height restriction may also apply.
