The ever exciting and popular Knights of Royal England return to Hedingham to recreate the classic Tourney in front of the Keep, an awesome spectacle of chivalry, hand to hand combat, mounted challenges and dark deeds! Surrounding it all will be a bustling arena full of craft stalls, a range of food and a host of entertainment! The Dragons of Wye-ten Puppet Theatre Show! The Norfolk Longbowmen demonstrating the art of Archery – have a go! Falconry displays! Our Official Jester Jonathan de Hadleigh, will cause his usual mayhem with his Wife! Musicians, Donkey Rides, a Maypole, Coconut Shies and Face Painting provide constant entertainment throughout the day! Something for all the family in a great day out! The provisional running order for both days is as follows: the Jesters and Maypole from 11, Puppet Theatre at 11.30, Falconry at 12, first Jousting Tournament at 12.30, Main Jesters’ show at 1.15, 2nd Puppet Theatre show at 2, Jesters and Maypole at 2.30, 2nd (and different) Falconry display at 3 and the final Jousting Tournament of the day at 3.30.
