Re-enactors conducting a knighting ceremony in the Abbey Church

Our authentic 14th century knighting ceremony is performed amid ancient stained-glass windows and the candlelight of the Abbey Church. This intimate event is a something to behold.

During the Middle Ages a popular time for knighting ceremonies to occur was on the eve of a tournament, battle or joust. The Abbey Medieval Festival highlights this tradition with a knighting ceremony on Friday evening before our weekend of tournaments, battles and jousting aplenty.

When: 7:30pm, Friday 12 July 2019

Where: The Abbey Church

Admission to the ceremony is free.
