See one of the greatest spectacles in Yorkshire — authentic medieval jousting in the heart of Leeds.

Join us for a truly international tournament when the tiltyard will resound to the thunder of hooves and the crack of lance on armour over the Easter bank holiday weekend.

This year four teams of knights, from the UK, Poland, USA and Canada, will battle for honour and trophies.
