Event Details

Friday 30 March – Monday 2 April 2018

Enjoy the thrills and spills of authentic medieval jousting in the heart of Leeds.

This Easter the Royal Armouries’ arena will resound to the clash of a live-action tournament, as internationally renowned knights from England, France, Poland and Australia battle for our prestigious trophies. It’s spectacular entertainment for all the family.

A sell-out in 2016 and 2017 – don’t miss this world-class jousting competition – book your tickets now.

Stay for the day
Each day, as well as two not-to-be-missed dangerously entertaining tournament shows, there will be an action-packed museum programme including tales of the tournament, arming the knight demonstrations, sword combat plus jolly jesters and wandering minstrels – all included with your ticket.

Easter Monday – Grand Final
Our Tournament culminates on Easter Monday with a 12 noon show, followed by the magnificent Parade of the Knights at 2.15pm and the Grand Final at 3pm.

Royal Armouries reserves the right to amend the programme without prior notification.
