Summer holidays battles

If you’re already dreading the summer holidays and the difficulties that arise trying to entertain the kids for six weeks then don’t pull your hair out just yet as Arundel Castle has got a fantastic line-up of child-friendly events to keep the little ones occupied.

Kicking off on July 9-10, the Castle is introducing the Norman Knights’ Tournament, which will feature a thrilling combat and archery tournament in the upper ground as well as have-a-go archery for over 8’s and falconry demonstrations.

The highlight of the calendar is undoubtedly the International Jousting & Medieval Tournament on 26-31 July, when knights from across the world battle it out atop specially trained horses before hand-to-hand combat challenges.

A Medieval Tournament then takes place on 20-21 August before the History In Action event on 27-29 August, which travels through the Norman, Medieval and Victorian periods to show how Sussex developed in the county it is today.


There’s also plenty of other events throughout the holiday weeks to keep the kids active, and allow you some peace, and to check them out visit
