Loxwood Joust is stepping up a gear with a new participatory element for its 10-year anniversary. Teaming up with Harmless Creations (Crystal Maze Live, Knightmare Live), the Loxwood Joust will this year expand upon its already packed agenda of fast-paced jousting, battle re-enactments and musical performances, to offer guests the chance to step inside this year’s story. Visitors will get to know the lords, ladies, knights and peasants; rub shoulders with the Royal Court and help decide the fate of the ne’er-do-wells that roam the kingdom.
Guests will enter the realm via the magical forest and be met by an array of colourful characters; each with a story to tell, rumours to spread or a favour to ask. Accept the right invitations, choose a quest and become an official ‘Citizen of Loxwood’ in this unique experience.
Festivalgoers will be able to learn from the medieval characters who live in the battle camp wander the grounds and become entwined in this year’s stories and outcomes. And add-on experiences for 2021 include:
- Handfasting ceremonies
- Blacksmithing workshops
- Sword school (in the children’s kingdom)
- Copper bowl making
- Chain mail making
- Singing workshops with the Medieval Baebes
