Medieval Jousting at Stonor - 10am to 4pm, 26th & 27th Sept
Join the Knights of Royal England for an epic display of medieval jousting at Stonor Park
A truly memorable jousting tournament will take place during which knights in full armour will stop at nothing, charging full tilt on Andalusian geldings in an attempt to strike their opponent’s shield and knock them out of their saddle. See spectacular horseback stunts as well as foot combat with medieval weaponry.
Our Medieval Jousting Tournament has been fully approved by South Oxfordshire District Council and organised in consultation with Thames Valley Police.
As well as two jousting tournaments a day there will also be regular Falconry displays to fascinate the crowds.
Do you fancy yourself as a bit of a Robin Hood or an English Longbowman about to head to the Battle of Agincourt? Then try your hand at Archery which will be available all day (extra costs apply).
Enjoy a Hog Roast, Stonor Gourmet Venison Burgers, Venison as well as Pork baps, local Rebellion Beer, a wide range of soft drinks, ice creams and coffee stalls. You can also buy wooden swords, shields and bows and arrows from the Armoury.
Medieval Costume Competition
Dust off your chainmail and be part of the fun in our Medieval Costume Competition. There will be a prize of a bottle of mead for the adult in the best medieval dress and a wooden sword and shield for the best dressed child each day.
