In authentic custom-made suits of solid steel armour, the Knights of Destrier bring the days of chivalry back to the ancient tilting lawns of Hedingham! At closing speeds of over 40 miles an hour, their Jousting is as close to the real thing as it gets! Enjoy the skill of the riders during the Hunting Games mid-morning, discover the secrets of the medieval armourer during the Arming of the Knights and then watch in awe as the Knights stage a tournament with no quarter given! Coda Falconry will be putting on two different Birds of Prey Displays with Hawks, Owls and a musical Raven, and you can visit the birds throughout the day. Have a go at some archery with the Norfolk Longbow Men, learn traditional maypole dances, ride a donkey! The Jester will be misbehaving and Blondel set the mood with wonderful music played on traditional instruments. The Tudor Roses will be demonstrating the fashions of the period and with craft and food stalls and tours of the Castle there’s something for every age and a great day out for all the family!
