  • What's it really like being a medieval Jouster? Online event: 23 April 2021

    Historical storytelling: Join Simon in this exciting historical interpretation of what it was really like being a medieval Jouster!

    Join us for this World Book Night event on 23 April at 7.30pm

    What's it really like being a medieval Jouster? And is a Squire's life really that good?

    You have all read stories about the lives of the jousting knights, their bravery, and their chivalry?

    I do believe an explanation is required about what life is really like.

    Meet a jouster and his squire telling their versions of the same day in their lives.

    Are all knights chivalrous and nobly bred?

    Are all squires devoted servants?

    The truth will out!

    Suitable for all ages.

    7.30pm to 8pm on 23 April 2021

    This is an online event that will take place via Zoom. Book via the Eventbrite link below. After booking your ticket, you will be emailed log-in details on the day of the performance.
