The Loxwood Joust on Saturday 3rd - Sunday 4th August 2019
The Loxwood Joust heralds a family day out like no other, with mediaeval revelry, mayhem and action packed battles taking place on the 3rd, 4th,10th and 11th August.
Booming cannon fire joins the clash of steel on steel as mighty knights’ fight with vigour, before returning to their mediaeval battle camp. Experience a fast-paced, all action jousting tournament taking place before the Queen, and master the art of metalwork, copper bowl making and chain-mail jewellery in the authentic workshops.
Learn from the apothecaries, let woodland faeries guide you, partake in hand fasting ceremonies and get close to graceful high-flying hawks. The mediaeval market place is filled with traders and hawkers, so see the Copper Pot cook unveil the myths of mediaeval cookery, the Masked Executioner recount his gory trade and soldiers retell the importance of archers and billman in mediaeval warfare.
And, as you dine on a sumptuous four course banquet, court jesters, live music and riddlers will entertain, so be sure to sample the Loxwood Mead too.
Wandering minstrels will entrance and the Mediaeval Baebes will soothe with songs of chivalry, love and loss.Be sure not to miss Trobar De Morte’s first UK show; and let young knights and princesses’ try sword school combat training, have-a-go archery and pelt the peasant, before discovering new Jesting skills!
But, how will you fayre in the den of Witches…?
The Loxwood Joust is located in Loxwood Meadow, West Sussex, off the B2133 near Billingshurst.
