Two Weekends Of Mediaeval Mayhem
Now in its 7th YEAR
THE LOXWOOD JOUST - is the UK's premiere MEDIAEVAL FUN DAY OUT taking place at the enchanted Loxwood Meadow. The Loxwood Joust is the most spectacular mediaeval festival in the Realm with an unrivalled programme of mediaeval 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 Loxwood Joust's unrivalled programme of mediaeval revelry guarantees a day out like no other. A fast-paced, all action jousting tournament will amaze and astound whilst 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 mediaeval battle camp and browse the Mediaeval 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.
Try your hand at archery, sup fine ales and dine on local organic fayre while the little ones can enjoy their very own Children's Kingdom - a festival within a festival where the Mediaeval Groat is the currency! This "Mini Mediaeval Mayhem" includes Have a go Archery, Face and Wound Painting, Pelt the Peasant and "Sword School" where you can learn to be an apprentice Knight
And don't forget to visit "The Torture Zone in the Woodland" where you'll find Gilbert Savage, aka The Executioner, putting his new rack to good use. A replica of the real one that was used in the Tower of London, this gruesome assemblage of rollers, ratchets and metal framework just goes to show that creativity came in all forms during the dark ages and "The Mediaeval Gaming Zone" where you can try a few historic card games, play a round of chess or try your hand at Tafl - a strategy game from the Viking era.
