The annual Summer Jousting Tournaments begins at Hever Castle on 8 and 9 August.

The Knights of Royal England will be entertaining the crowds with exhilarating displays of action, stunts, falls and fights in an authentic arena.

Battling it out in the saddle and on foot in one-to-one combat, the valiant knights will then compete for points to find this season’s ultimate champion.

Surrounded by 125 acres of beautiful ground and award-winning gardens, historic Hever Castle provides a picturesque setting for a fantastic day of jousting.

Bring a blanket to watch the tournament from the two acre field or watch the joust in style from the medieval spectator stands. Then choose which knights you support and cheer them to glory.

Spectator stands are available for pre-booking at a cost of £25 for a stand, with occupancy in line with current government guidelines.

For more information or to book 01732 865 224 or email to make your booking. Bookings must be made by 3pm the Friday before.

Some new safety measures will be in place and the popular procession with Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn and the Knights of Royal England from the Castle Forecourt to the Jousting arena will not happen this year.

Jousting tournaments take place throughout August at Hever Castle on 8 & 9, 15 & 16; 22 & 23; 28 – 31.

Families can also enjoy the 125 acre stunning gardens at Hever Castle, the recently reopened play areas and the historic Castle, the childhood home of Anne Boleyn.
