Description

Friday 19 April – Monday 22 April 2019
Royal Armouries Museum, Leeds

Jousting at 12 noon & 3pm


Pre-bookable tickets are now sold out.

There will be 100 standing tickets for each of the 12 noon and 3pm shows on sale at the Royal Armouries on the day.


Enjoy the thrills and spills of authentic medieval jousting in the heart of Leeds.

This Easter the Royal Armouries’ arena will resound to the clash of a live-action tournament, as internationally renowned knights, from the UK, Poland, USA and Canada, battle for our prestigious trophies. It’s spectacular entertainment for all the family.

Stay for the day

Your ticket includes two not-to-be-missed dangerously entertaining tournament shows (at 12noon & 3pm), an action-packed museum programme including arming the knight demonstrations, sword combat, tales from the tournament plus jolly jesters and wandering minstrels.

Easter Monday is Grand Final Day and sees the culmination of the various team competitions in a final clash in the tiltyard. There'll be a parade of knights and the awarding of the Sword of Honour to the champion team, as well as individual prizes for chivalry and valour.

You don't see that every day! At 12noon on Easter Monday you'll be able to witness a rare spectacle – the mêlée – an every knight for himself full-on bash fest, as they try to knock the crowns off each other's helmets, whilst riding at speed and avoiding being hit.

The 3pm competition will feature the finals of the mounted skill-at-arms and jousting competitions.
