Father’s Day Medieval Jousting at Sudeley Castle

by | Jul 3, 2018 | Equestrian Displays, Knights on Horseback, Medieval, Medieval Jousting Displays

A different kind of tournament for those trying to avoid the World Cup!  With an even better trophy to win – for the Champion of the Sudeley Castle Medieval Jousting Tournament on Father’s Day 2018 walked away with a very impressive pair of engraved jugs!

With four horses this time and the gardens and trees at Sudeley Castle in full bloom, it was a beautiful venue to perform our Medieval Jousting Main Arena Jousting Display.

In honour of Father’s Day we had some special visitors including our own Lady Lancelot’s father who was given a handmade card as part of the show.  We also invited a father and son team to support their favourite Knight in the spirit of the day, with the loosing Knight getting a turn in the stocks!

Henry VIII was in attendance with his full court of beautiful Tudor Queens.  If you have not had a chance to hear their wonderful performance then do make sure you get along to Sudeley or Berkeley Castle soon, to see them.  In the meantime, pop across to their Facebook page to give them a like and see what they are up to next.  With so many new performances across the UK, like them on Facebook, to find out where they will be next so you can see them in action!

For those of you who may not know, Sudeley Castle is the final resting place of Katharine Parr, Henry VIII’s final wife.  She is buried in the Chapel and here is a picture of Asgard standing just outside:

Back to the Medieval Jousting Tournament, we were delighted to see so many of you there and such large queues for everyone to meet the Knights after their performances.

We came to see you today at Sudeley Castle and had such a wonderful time seeing both of your shows. I just wanted to say a quick but heartfelt thank you, as my 5 year old son, played a small part in the first show following your request for a father and son to help. I can’t tell you how much of a confidence boost this has been for him following a tough few months health wise for him. You utterly made his day and he is proudly taking his photo into school tomorrow, as well as being framed in his room!! Thank you so much once again for some brilliant entertainment and especially for making my little boys day and making him feel special again.

It’s another busy week here at HQ as we prepare for our performances in Ireland.  In the meantime, if you want to follow the adventures of The Cavalry of Heroes and not miss out on a single moment then head over to our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages and if you want to join the adventure sign up to receive our newsletter by email which includes all the latest show information as well as insightful videos from Marc on how he trains the horses and interesting articles about horses throughout history from Catherine.
