You are cordially invited to Knight School this summer holidays.

This summer, Empress Matilda is preparing to take back her sieged throne and has enlisted us at the castle to train her latest recruits for medieval battle. Our Knight School programme consists of an hour-long training session covering the essential skills needed to defeat Stephen, Empress Matildas' cousin.

The apprentice knights will be trained in the following areas:
– Sword handling and fighting
– Archery skills
– Jousting skills

At the graduation ceremony, our knights will be awarded their very own sword that they can keep and take home.

Our Knight School programme is recommended for children aged between 5 and 10 years old. Children must be accompanied by a parent/carer for the duration of the session.

Each session lasts an hour and is conducted by our qualified staff.

All weapons used are safe and child-friendly.
