Just Jousting – Experience the Thrills and Spills of the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Challenge - Wednesday, 25 August 2010

Cheer on some of the world’s top jousters as they clash head to head for HM The Queen’s Golden Jubilee Trophy at the Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds this Bank Holiday (August 28 to 30).

Watch the drama build through the heats, reaching a climax on Bank Holiday Monday when “Henry VIII” will present the overall champion with a trophy following the spectacular finale.

There will be two smashing heats on Saturday and Sunday at 12.15pm and 2.45pm – with a nail biting semi-final and final concluding the excitement on Monday. One of the Royal Armouries professional actors – in full Henry VIII regalia – will do the honours at the awards ceremony.
