Tournament
All the thrills of the medieval tournament

The Plantagenet Medieval Society offer a packed timetable of displays and activities to accommodate the whole family.

The tournament commences with the archery display, demonstrating the versatility of the long bow in both hunting and war. Next, aspiring squires from the audience will get the chance to test their skills with medieval weaponry, under the tutelage of the Master at Arms. Following this, a display of medieval dances by the Ladies of the Court will delight and charm, the dances add grace and elegance to the otherwise warlike proceedings.

The day culminates with the Knights' Full-Contact Tournament, fully armoured knights with authentic weaponry display their skill and prowess in combat, battling it out until a victor is crowned champion.

What our visitors say:

I am emailing to thank your society for the lovely day my family had at Caldicott Castle with your knights and ladies on Sunday. From the moment we arrived my children were completely captivated by the event. The friendliness and attention of the knights, ladies and the little squire my son played with made the day very special for them - they have not stopped talking about it!

We've just returned from a fabulous day out watching your group at Richmond castle. We had the best day out we'd had for a couple of years and I just wanted to say thank you.

Home from a 2nd day with the amazing Plantagenets, hope to see you all again next year, have a safe journey home.

Brilliant time at Richmond Castle, our little boys had a blast! Will definitely come again. We are English Heritage members so this entire amazing day cost nothing!

Thanks for a great show on Sunday at Caldicot. Really enjoyed all of it, but I was particularly impressed by the high standard of combat you achieved in very difficult circumstances. Storming stuff!

Saw the show today at Kenilworth Castle and thought it was fantastic. Amazing costumes, armour and weapons, something for all the family to enjoy. Thank you all for a great day.
