medieval fun day the Loxwood Joust is set to return on August 2 and 3 this year at the enchanting Loxwood meadow.
The spectacular festival offers an unrivalled programme of medieval mayhem.
Step back in time and experience the verve and vigour of a world where lives were harsh and hearts were passionate at this unique, fun and educational day out for all the family.
Each day from 10am to 6pm, the joust’s unrivalled programme of medieval revelry guarantees a day out like no other.
A new fast-paced, all action jousting tournament will amaze and astound, while daring displays of weaponry, archery and cannon fire will enthral as fully-armoured knights prepare to meet in a thunderous battle.
The main concert stage is where performances from the internationally acclaimed singing group the Mediaeval Baebes will enchant and soothe.
Wander the massive Living History Village in the mediaeval meadow – a totally authentic recreation of a medieval battle camp – and browse the medieval market place where traders and hawkers vie for your attention as companies of actors, wandering minstrels, the court jester and dance troupes entertain and delight throughout the day.
Pay a visit to the masked executioner and beware of the creatures most foul – the lepers.
The Loxwood Joust’s medieval learning zone takes an entertaining and fascinating look at medieval torture – including some interestingly gruesome facts, the medieval housewife and The Apothecary’s Tale.
Try your hand at archery, sup fine ales and dine on local organic fare while the little ones enjoy their very own children’s kingdom – a festival within a festival where the medieval groat is the currency.
This ‘Mini Medieval Mayhem’ includes have-a-go archery, have-a-go jousting, Pelt the Peasant, face and wound painting and a bouncy castle.
The Loxwood Joust is located just off the B2133 between Wisborough Green and Loxwood and has ample free parking.
