Joust the thing

Jousting comes to Belsay.
Jousting comes to Belsay.

ALL the drama of clashing knights on horseback will come to Belsay Hall this Bank Holiday weekend.

Visitors are invited to choose their champion in the Mounted Skill at Arms and full contact jousting re-enactments.

They will also be treated to flying displays performed by Raphael Historic Falconry, plus medieval music from Trouvere and mischief from a jester.

Meanwhile, the Time Traveller Crew will be providing children’s have-a-go sessions of all things medieval throughout each day.

The activities will take place on Saturday, Sunday and Monday, between 11am and 4.30pm.

Entry is £11 for adults, concessions £9, children £7 and £30 for a family ticket. Residents can reserve their tickets in advance by calling 0870 333 1183.
