Jousting knights steal the show at annual stunt event

First published in News

Spectacular jousting knights were the stars of a medieval festival this bank holiday.

The Knights of Middle England descended upon 900-year-old Hedingham Castle for the annual stunt show and crowds of onlookers were entertained by their saddle falls, drags and rearing horses.

The two-day event on Sunday 24 and Monday 25 also played host to the Norfolk Longbowmen, who kept up the dark-ages theme with an archery demonstration, and Lavenham Falconry, who displayed beautiful birds of prey to spectators.

Jester Jonathan de Hadleigh caused mayhem despite the rain on bank holiday Monday, and musicians, donkey rides, a maypole, coconut shies and face painting helped to keep spirits high.
