This July, the grounds of Henry VIII’s Hampton Court Palace will once again ring out with the sound of charging horse’s hooves and the clash of cold metal, as for one weekend only King Henry VIII and his court take up residence for that most Tudor of sports; the joust. Tudor Joust at Hampton Court Palace takes place on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th July 2017.
Recreating the pomp and ceremony of a lavish court entertainment, visitors will be immersed into the sights, sounds and smells of the Tudor court, brought to life with dazzling displays of sword fighting, courtly games and music. There’ll be a host of weird and wonderful Tudor instruments to discover, and the chance for young visitors to try out new pieces of armour for size.
Throughout the day, visitors can witness the knights arming themselves for battle, or watch as the court musicians prepare themselves for their royal command performance. Crowds will gather to cheer on the rival knights as they compete for glory, and soak up the thrill and spectacle of the joust as guests of the King.
This event runs over the weekend of 15th and 16th July 2017 and is the perfect day out for all the family. Included in a palace admission ticket.
