Jousting, actual jousting, on horses, at a castle, armour and muscular knights...
Have I got your attention? I should think so!
Fun for all the family, Camp Bestival hosts actual jousting tournaments!
"The Knights of Middle England are a team of
professional horsemen, jousters, stunt riders and actors who bring the
much fabled sport of Jousting into the 21st Century. This Warwickshire
based team bring with them over 15 years of both equestrian and
showmanship expertise providing a high-octane action packed show - true
great British family entertainment at its best!"
It's excellent, and all included in the price of your festival ticket! So fair maidens, bring a trinket or a spare pair of knickers to give to your chosen knight, and let the contest begin!
"Bold and bright costumes accompanied with stunts such as saddle falls,
drags and rearing horses make this a show to remember! No show would be
complete without the traditional evil Black Knight (Le Chevalier Noir)
who will try and win the tournament by any means necessary against the
gallant Earl of Warwick and his team of chivalrous Knights as they try
to rescue the Princess from the Black Knights clutches!"
