About the event

This July, the grounds of Hampton Court Palace will once again ring out with the sound of charging horses and the clash of cold metal, as King Henry VIII and his court are entertained by that most Tudor of royal sports: the joust.

Join Henry VIII, Katherine Parr, Lady Mary and other members of the King's inner circle for this ultimate display of Tudor power and performance.

Cheer on the rival knights as they compete for glory, and soak up the thrill and spectacle of the joust as guests of the King.
