The Tournament of Knights!


Fighting knights return to the Fayre!

Four Knights separated into two houses, Lion and Dragon, will compete against each other with sword, mace and quarter staff in combat, to discover which house will reign supreme in Ludlow Castle’s brand new tournament!

Who will be victorious, the brave and chivalrous House of the Lion, led by Sir Edward Baldwin with his faithful bannerman Sir William Varde? Or the treacherous House of the Dragon, captained by the vile Black Knight, Sir Robert de’Courtney with his
bannerman the Mercenary Knight? Watch the battles and find out!
