Spectacular Jousting

Linlithgow Palace, 5 July 2014 to 6 July 2014

Linlithgow Palace Jousting Event
**Spectacular Jousting is finished for 2014 but we’ll be back with dates in 2015**

In a daring display of horsemanship and skill our knights will do all they can to better their opponent from knight on knight jousting, ring jousting and foot combat. Hear the thunder of hooves and the crack of lances splintering as our knights battle it out in the arena.

There’s lots for visitors to get involved in too - learn about the fashions of the day from the ladies of the court, meet the palace jester and sign up to join our kids army! There’s lots to keep everyone entertained at our bustling camps and living history displays.
