Jousters from around the world will vie to be crowned victor of Arundel Castle’s Jousting and Medieval Tournament: Champion of Champions edition this July.

The unique six-day spectacular, which takes place from 25-30 July, is the longest event of its kind in the world. Castle Manager Stephen Manion says: “This year marks a number of significant milestones at Arundel Castle: it is the 950th anniversary of the Castle’s initial construction, a decade since the unveiling of The Collector Earl’s Gardens, and the 10th year of hosting the fantastic Jousting and Medieval Tournament.

“The tournament is unique, testing the physical and mental prowess of each competing knight, as well as their chivalry, horsemanship and stamina. We are delighted to be hosting a ‘Champion of Champions’ edition in celebration of its 10th outing at the Castle – our visitors are in for a real treat.”

Arundel Castle in West Sussex will re-open for the spring and summer season on Sunday 30 March 2018.
