Join the Knights of Nottingham for an exhilarating weekend of jousting at Berkeley Castle, this August bank holiday.

Brave knights and their steeds are riding into Berkeley Castle for an action-packed August bank holiday weekend of medieval jousting displays.

Going head-to-head at the historic attraction on Sunday 27 and Monday 28 August 2023, the Knights of Nottingham are doing battle on the Lower Lawn, with hard-hitting jousting tournaments at 12.30pm and 2.30pm each day.

Cheer for the gallant White Knight as they face the formidable Black Knight on horseback, in a thrilling display of combat where anything can happen.

Audience participation is encouraged and the jovial St Frederick is on hand to keep the whole family laughing with his merry antics, too!

There's a small additional cost of £1 per person for tickets to Berkeley Castle over the bank holiday weekend, with all the jousting action included in admission.
