Tudor tournament at Hampton Court Palace (29 – 31 August)


For the first time in modern history, Hampton Court Palace plays host to a recreation of a Tudor jousting tournament.

Gasp and cheer as knights in armour thunder onto the field on their magnificent chargers. England’s finest jousters compete to impress King Henry VIII and his bride Queen Kateryn Parr with a display of skill, strength and bravery. And who is the mysterious knight come to win all the prizes?

Not to be missed.
