We are on holiday from work this week so on Wednesday we went to a Medieval Joust!
The event was held at the glorious Pendennis Castle at Falmouth which of course is located to give the most fabulous views over the surrounding sea and land.
There were falconry displays with fascinating talks about how the birds were used in days gone by, for example to catch animals to feed families for free.
Music from the time was provided by the talented Nonimus Minstrels - we were so impressed we bought their CD.
A hilarious jester wandered around entertaining the crowds, as well as putting on a few of his own shows throughout the day.
And of course there were four knights taking part in three different sessions of horsemanship and skill, culminating in the joust. Incredible!
It was a fabulous day - if you get chance to go I would thoroughly recommend it!
