Harcourt Park Jousting Returns in 2015!
We are holding our flagship event - The Harcourt Park World Invitational Jousting Tournament
again on February 21st and 22nd 2015 at Harcourt Park Upper Hutt. This is New Zealand's biggest public medieval re-enactment event and is also one of the premiere jousting events of its type in the world.
We are well underway with planning and organsing the event.
The World Invitational "Grail of Chivalry" jousting tournament will be a little bit different then previous years in that it will be a 14th century joust. That means all the jousters will wearing 14th century armour and costume. The 14th century was the pinnacle of the jousting era with many deifferent styles and types of armour being developed and experimented with so this will be a grand spectacle not seen in modern day jousting.
Supporting the jousting will be th inaugural 'Pacific Cup" for full contact Armoured Combat featuring the best competitive medieval foot fighters from New Zealand and abroad.
In addition there wil be our regular supporting events - the Medieval Village, Mass Foor Battles, Individual Foot Combat Tournament, Junior Knight School Tournament, Longbow Archery display, and medieval and modern food and craft stalls.
We will be adding in a special page for this event soon! Order of the Boar Sponsor
