It is 1138 and the Norman Knights Tournament will celebrate the marriage of the Dowager Queen Adeliza de Louvain and William de Albini. 12th century knights, squires, archer and men-at-arms will face off in a foot tournament on the lower lawns of Arundel Castle.

With competitions using a variety of weapons, the free-style fighting of the combatants will be the nearest reproduction of tournament combat seen outside of the 12th century.
With storytelling, falconry display, have-a-go-archery and a tented encampment of crafts and displays, there is plenty to see and experience over the weekend.
