Royal Armouries are delighted to be able to bring live-action jousting to the heart of Yorkshire this Easter bank holiday weekend. Three teams - United Kingdom, USA and Poland - will compete for honour and trophies in this live sporting event from medieval times.

From Friday 7 to Monday 10 April the museum’s impressive jousting arena in Leeds will resound to the cheers of crowds and the clash of lances on armour, as knights battle it out in an authentic medieval jousting tournament.

The museum opens at 10:00 and there are 2 tournament shows per day starting at 11:00 & 14:00, featuring knights and horses, plus plenty of pomp and pageantry .

It promises to be spectacular entertainment for all the family.
