Medieval Jousting under the London Skyline at Lambeth Country Show

She strong, she’s fit, she’ll see you in the lists! Lancelot, Lancelot!  Lambeth Country Show last weekend saw the first appearance of our Lady Lancelot as she joined five other Knights in shining armour on Horseback as they competed in the joust to see who will become tournament champion.

A show close to both my heart and our Golden Knight, Sir William’s (Marc Lovatt) heart, as it is on the doorstep of where we first met.  Marc was living in Brixton running Triathlons and working with horses and I was working in the city and living in Northcote Road.  The London Skyline from the top of Brockwell park is just stunning and will always remind us where we met.  What has made returning even better is being surround by our beautiful horses!

As always, thank you London, for being an amazing crowd, including the lovely lady who insisted that our Lord Baldric ‘Get his kit off’ to which he almost obliged.  Everyone cheered as the Knights performed with a buzz of excitement and greeted their fans as everyone was asked to choose their favourite Knight and with so many to choose from it wasn’t an easy task.

Our Knights included Lady Lancelot, who had stolen her father’s armour to complete.  Our Golden Knight, Sir William fighting for truth, compassion and tolerance.  Sir Baldric on the fasted horse in the arena Apollo, the first of the Dark Knight’s evil Henchmen.  And not to forget The King, The Dark Knight and Sir Agravaine.

The horses drew the biggest crowd though and were beautifully behaved, even our Stallions, when they were distracted by the police horses performing but also when the mounted police were patrolling the park.  Couldn’t have been more proud of the boys; Asgard, Zorro, Harry, Apollo, Curioso and Guinness.

Sulgrave Manor - Medieval Tudor Wedding - Jousting Tournament with The Cavalry of Heroes - Thumbs down for the Dark Knight

Nothing as Sweet as a Beautiful Medieval Wedding Day at Sulgrave Manor

Love was in the air last weekend at dreamy Sulgrave Manor.  It was like being in a fairy-tale all weekend, as two Knights on horseback jousted in celebration of a Wedding Day, in this fabulously themed event.  Visitors were officially welcomed to the event by the Mayor with his Knights as his guards of honour.  There was so much going on and so well thought out that the day was just beautiful.

The Knights performed under the trees in the romantic back garden and met with lots of adoring fans, including many dressed up as Knights and Princesses themselves.  It was our Golden Knight who jousted against Sir Edwin (the Groom) in this joyful show before the Dark Knight made his appearance just as the skies darkened.

But there was no rain on this wedding day (except The Dark Knight getting his just desserts!) just glorious sunshine and lots of happy faces.

I’m still smiling over such a beautiful day.  Thank you to the lovely organisers who made us feel so at home, to the local fish and chip shop for such a splendid meal and the medieval re-enactors who bought the venue alive.  And a big congratulations also to the couple who got married at the pub down the road the night before!  Big smiles all round.

What an amazing weekend; wonderfully organised and superbly entertaining!  The entire team had so much fun celebrating the 600 year anniversary of the Battle of Agincourt and the horses marvelled in all the attention!

There were horse and carriage rides around town in the morning alongside medieval tours by Hay History Group, a fantastic turn out by The Freemen of Gwent, as well as calligraphy and workshops to decorate swords and shields.

In the afternoon our Knights turned up to sword fight in and around the castle, followed by performances from the Morris Dancers and The Village Quire.  Culminating in a superb performance by the Hay Theatre Company of Shakespeare’s Henry V with the audience processing through town as either the English or the French ready to fight their final battle in front of the castle.

We met many a princess and brave knight willing to fight on the day and all of this in the fantastic grounds of Hay Castle.

In the evening Professor Anne Curry gave an illustrated talk on the Battle of Agincourt to an engaged audience.

At the end of it all Guinness, Asgard, Harry and Apollo all took a well-deserved roll in the fields before dinner and a good night’s sleep.
