Tournament 2017

Enjoy the thrills and spills of authentic medieval jousting in the heart of Leeds.

This Easter the Royal Armouries’ arena will resound to the clamour and clash of a live-action tournament, as internationally renowned knights battle for the coveted Sword of Honour and the prestigious Queen’s Jubilee Trophy – spectacular entertainment for all the family.

Each day of the tournament weekend will be packed with pomp and pageantry, music and minstrels plus two not-to-be-missed dangerously entertaining tournament shows.

The museum is open daily from 10am to 5pm. Activities in the museum start at 10.45am. Arena shows will be at 12pm and 3pm and last approximately 45 minutes. Tickets include both shows.
