Just as Formula 1 racing is today, the medieval tournament was a fast, high-risk and exciting spectacle.

Join us for an entertaining and illuminating lecture, by Senior Curator of Armour Karen Watts, and explore the evolution of tournaments from training for war to extreme sport.

The lecture will be followed by a guided tour of the Tournament Gallery and an armed pollaxe demonstration.
