A MEDIEVAL month of May is being staged by English Heritage at Bolsover and Peveril castles in north Derbyshire.
Four teams of knights and squires will tour the region visiting each castle to demonstrate their combat skills and win the crowd’s support to back them in the tournament finale, the Grand Medieval Joust.
This is to be held at Bolsover Castle near Chesterfield on May 29 and 30, when only one knight can emerge victorious. The action at the castles will be over the next four weekends, starting on April 30 to May 2.
Visitors will be able to meet a knight and squire, watch as they hone their battle skills and hear tales of battles past and their victories.
