Saturday Tickets

Sunday Tickets

Without a doubt the Joust is the most popular event of the weekend by all who attend the festival.  This year we have added an extra afternoon of jousting to the program, the  Friday Joust Tourney is our  attempt to satiate the joust-appetites and also provide a unique behind the scenes view of the festival.

The weekend jousts in the arena are ticketed and you are highly encouraged to pre-book your tickets, as the numbers fill up quickly and once the allotted number of places are filled, that joust will be closed to comply with our health and safety obligations.  There are four jousting events each day, so both Saturday and Sunday,  to enable as many people as possible to see the jousters,  their horses and the tournament.  Four gold coins will purchase you a place in the grandstands with other noble guests and will not only offer you a view of the joust tournament, but also a unique pre-show highlighting other aspects of the medieval era.

Please note: Jousts take place on both Saturday and Sunday, with slightly differing pre-shows (included in your ticket price). Please ensure you select the correct day, as we are unable to exchange tickets . A Jousting ticket is only valid if you have purchased an entry ticket to the Festival.
