Knights, Horses, Jesters, Falconry, Music, Gruesome Tales and Stalls all go together to transport you back to the pageantry of the medieval joust.
A truly wonderful family day out set in the grounds ofFalmouth’sPendennisCastleand her spectacular views. See knights prepare in their armour and then mount their sturdy steeds to compete in a real joust. Be entertained by the famous jester ‘Peterkin’ the fool including his ‘Fire Finale’.
