The turrets and towers of Knebworth House will provide a spectacular backdrop to Medieval jousting this Easter weekend.

Knebworth Park’s annual Easter jousting event will take place on Easter Sunday, April 16, and Easter Monday, April 17, with two scheduled displays on both days at about 12.30pm and 2.30pm, depending on the weather.

Knights will also demonstrate their skills in hand-to-hand combat to the delight of the crowds.

And the costumed knights on majestic horses will gallop at full tilt across the arena in a fantastic display of horsemanship.

There is no additional charge to see the jousting at Knebworth as it is included in the regular Park and Gardens admission ticket.
