Knights’ Tournament

Cowdray Heritage opens for the summer season this Saturday, 15th July.

The site will be open until Sunday 17th September on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays as well as on the August Bank Holiday Monday. Entrance is between 11am and 4pm, with last admission at 3pm.

To celebrate the opening on Saturday, there will be a Knights’ tournament held in the grounds of Cowdray Heritage. Organised by a late 15th Century re-enactment group, there will be a Knights’ presentation at 11.30am, Knights’ tournaments at midday and 2pm and a cooking demonstration at 1pm.

Other special events this summer include a falconry display, a fun Shakespeare spoof and a Cowdray 5k and 10k run.

Sally Guile, the Operations Manager of Cowdray Heritage, said: “We are very excited to be opening for the summer season this Saturday. To mark the occasion, we are holding a Knights’ tournament and hope that lots of people will join us for what promises to be a fun family day out. The Ruins will provide a stunning backdrop for this event.

“Unusually this season we are also open on Thursdays and Fridays which means that visitors both from the local area and from further afield have the opportunity to explore the Ruins during the week too.”
