SPECTATORS can choose their champion as noble knights face each other in the field when Spectacular Jousting returns to Caerlaverock Castle from 12.30pm this Saturday and Sunday.

Visitors can watch the fearless knights battle it out in a daring display of skill and horsemanship.

The event allows an exploration of the sights and sounds of medieval life. In the medieval encampment, meet soldiers, visit the horses in their stables, have a go at archery and see falcons flying overhead.

Gillian Urquhart, events manager at HES, said: “Spectacular Jousting is one of our best loved family-friendly events.

“Visitors will feel as though they have been transported back to the Middle Ages under the backdrop of the picturesque Caerlaverock Castle.”

Tickets cost £12 for adults, £10 for concessions, £7 for children and under-fives go free.
