The Easter Tournament 2016 is not only a great way to spend the Bank Holiday weekend, but it also celebrates the museum's 20th anniversary with their 20th tournament. Andy Deane, the Royal Armouries' very own knight, will be back to compete for both the individual contest and for Team England with a team mate. Joining them in mock battle are the reigning team champions, Jan Gradon and Jarek Struczyński of Poland, and new competitors representing France, Marc Hamel and Michael Sadde.

Visitors are invited to experience the 'thrills and spills' of authentic medieval jousting and discover a collection of tournament arms and armour. Starting on Good Friday, 25 March, and running until Easter Monday, the jam-packed weekend will be filled with knights, horses and a sp·egg·tacular mêlée finale, back by popular demand, when all competing knights will clash in battle.
