We Are Passionate About What We Do
We understand the importance of providing a high quality, entertaining and exciting show for the public, and we train regularly to ensure we can meet this expectation.
Our travelling knights tournament consists of four opposing households, each comprised of a leading knight, serjens-at-arms, and levies.
You will see a variety of weapons used in our combat displays, including sword and shield, falchion, mace, axe and spear. We also have a team of skilled archers who can provide a competitive archery display.
We provide a supervised show-and-tell armoury where people can feel of the weight of weapons and armour, and even try on a few helmets.
Our members wear clothing, use weapons and armour, and provide tents, that are accurate recreations of 13th century artefacts.
