Demonstrations are taking place at Bolsover Castle in May in anticipation of the Grand Medieval Bolsover Joust at the end of the month.
The Medieval Month of May will showcase the talents of individual knights each weekend focusing on a different entrant.
The first demonstrations are today and finish on Bank Holiday Monday, featuring the talents of the red and green knights.
Further demonstrations are on Saturdays and Sundays May 12, 13, 19 and 20.
The knights will show off their archery, combat and horse riding skills, and light entertainment will be provided by the jester.
The Grand Medieval Joust will also feature medieval games, falconry displays and a knights training school for children.
Tickets are £8 for adults and £4.80 for children.
