The Golden Joust

23rd to 25th May

The Golden Joust
Join young King Henry VIII at the Joust this year, and just as at The Field of Cloth of Gold, cheer on your team when England takes on France in a true competition demonstrating the finest skills of agility, foot combat and horsemanship. Watch archery and firepower displays throughout the day with Tudor music and living history encampments to discover.

Food Fit for a King
Ever wondered what the Tudors ate? Indulge in roasted meats, pies and tarts, amongst other more familiar food; and watch food historians demonstrate ancient recipes and tell stories of old. Additional charges will apply.

The Wine Fountain
A working recreation of King Henry VIII’s Wine Fountain will be part of the festivities, pouring cups of wine and even local juices for children. Wines from the best vineyards in Kent will be represented for you to learn about and sample. Additional charges will apply.
