All our jousting events are based upon 15th century rules and techniques.Sources such as Rene of Anjou`s Tournament book and Bem Calavgar by Dom Duarte King of Portugal are carefully studied and applied .Our armours are painstakingly replicated by craftsmen who are at the height of the their armouring powers.
It is possible to chose two types of event. The most authentic solid lances from freshly cut trees, or the explosive breaking end style that spreads showers of wood across the arena to the delight of enthralled audiences across the world.
