Smashing Lances and Visitor Records at Sudeley Castle Medieval Jousting Show 2017

by | Apr 16, 2017 | Equestrian Displays, Medieval Jousting Show

What a day!  Easter Sunday saw four of our Knights on horseback descend on Sudeley Castle to battle it out in our first Medieval Jousting Show of the season.  The Dark Knight was in full form and the horses ready to show off their new tricks learnt over their winter training.  His Majesty King Henry VIII was also in attendance giving his royal seal of approval on the proceedings and taunting his arch nemesis The Dark Knight.

Not only did lances get smashed but so did visitor records with thousands turning up to visit the castle and cheer on our medieval jousting show despite the rain in the afternoon!  A wonderful feature then appeared in the Gloucestershire Echo, the next day: Thrills and Spills in the Joust, much to the delight of Golden Knight as his hair took centre stage and so did our beautiful Friesian Stallion Asgard with his equally long flowing mane.

We have some beautifully epic shots of the Sudeley Castle Medieval Jousting Show from the talented Stroud Camera Club capturing the concentration of our Golden Knight Sir William as well as Sir Balric and King Louis as they prepare themselves for the competition.

With cheering crowds and lots of chance for the Knights to meet their fans and visitors, great fun was had by all. The Knights thoroughly enjoyed camping in the shadow of the castle and experience the ghostly goings on.  We even had a friendly peacock stop by to say hello.
