The Loxwood Joust


The Loxwood Joust is the UK’s only immersive medieval festival and returns this August, featuring full-contact jousting, a living history village, witches, executioner, a full battle enactment, and running characters and storylines year on year.

Step back in time and experience the verve and vigour of a world where lives were harsh and hearts were passionate at this unique, fun and educational day out for all the family!

Each day from 10am to 6pm. The Loxwood Joust’s unrivalled programme of mediaeval revelry guarantees a day out like no other. A fast-paced, all action jousting tournament will amaze and astound whilst daring displays of weaponry, archery and cannon fire will enthral as fully armoured knights prepare to meet in a thunderous battle.

The main concert stage is where performances from the internationally acclaimed singing group the Mediaeval Baebes will enchant and soothe on 1st and 2nd and Trobar de Morte who travel all the way from Spain will perform on 8th and 9th. Wander the massive Living History Village in the ‘Field Of Banners’ – a totally authentic recreation of a mediaeval battle camp and browse the Mediaeval Market Place where traders and hawkers vie for your attention as companies of actors, wandering minstrels, the Court Jester and dance troupes entertain and delight throughout the day. 

Try your hand at archery, sup mead and fine ales and dine on local organic fayre while the little ones can enjoy their very own Children’s Kingdom – a festival within a festival where the Mediaeval Groat is the currency! This “Mini Mediaeval Mayhem” includes Have a go Archery, Face and Wound Painting, Pelt the Peasant and “Sword School” where you can learn to be an apprentice Knight

And don’t forget to visit “The Torture Zone in the Woodland” where you’ll find Gilbert Savage, aka The Executioner, putting his new rack to good use. A replica of the real one that was used in the Tower of London, this gruesome assemblage of rollers, ratchets and metal framework just goes to show that creativity came in all forms during the dark ages

Visit our new Faerie Realm, just beyond the witch wood in the Enchanted Woodland. Inside, at the Crescent Moon Temple, resident Goddess Mother Amantha Willoweaver will introduce you to the Loxwood nature spirits – and you’ll be able to place a blessing on the Wishing Tree. Next to the Faerie Realm is a Pagan Wedding Site offering handfastings for those who wish to literally tie the knot.

Why not try one of our “Experiences” where you can try your hand at Blacksmithing, Copper Bowl or Chain Mail making and if you want to treat yourself why not try one of our spectacular Banquets where you are invited to dine is style with a mediaeval feast in the Grand Banqueting Marquee.“A feast fit for a King” has never been more appropriate!
Excellently located just off the B2133 between Wisborough Green and Loxwood and has ample Free Parking.

The Loxwood Joust is a pageant of passion, a festival of filthe and fury.
