Promotional Video for the Annual Arundel Castle International Jousting Tournament

The prestigious and grueling seven day Arundel International Jousting Tournament will be returning this summer to the beautiful grounds of Arundel Castle in West Sussex, England. The tournament will take place from July 21 - 26, and will feature eight jousters from around the world.

From Arundel Castle:
Under the shadow of the mighty Castle, experience the thrill of the renowned Arundel International Jousting Competition, as revered knights from around the world gather to test their chivalry and skill at mounted combat in full plate armour. 
Set within an authentic Medieval style encampment and supported by the knights and men-at-arms of Raven Tor, Distant Trumpets Story Teller and the musicians of Rough Musicke, this is a unique week long tournament.

A thrilling tournament accompanied by have-a-go archery and a host of craft displays and entertainment; this really is the highlight of Arundel Castle’s events calendar.
The video below provides a taste of what the upcoming jousting and medieval tournament will be like:


The tournament is held as both a team and individual competition. Last year's team champions were Ben van Koert and Per Estein Prøis- Røhjell of the Burgundian Alliance, and the individual champion was Andy Deane. Since he was the individual tournament champion for 2014, Andy Deane will act as the knight marshal(head referee) for the 2015 Arundel International Tournament.
