I had always wanted to see a Jousting Tournament, they always look so exciting and lots of fun. I was right!.The day was held in the amazing grounds of Leeds Castle in Kent, England. We saw the 2.30 session...... I am so glad we came. Colour, exciting, funny, noisy....all they said it would be!
Then the two men running this event, asked for two volunteers to get dressed up as soldiers on different sides. It was funny, informative and very entertaining!
There were also an area where you could have a go at Archery..luckily for most people, the animals stayed still!
As usual l found colourful characters and l couldn't resist taking images of this guy's tattoes! Obviously he is very proud of his football team!!
Before the actual Tournament started, there were the gatherings of the people who would be the "Show"! There was King Henry the Eight and people from his court, all looking very realistic, colourful and very "in" character!
