War is coming to Warwick Castle in 2017! The battle cry has been raised and for over 50 selected dates from 27 May the pummelling of horses’ hooves and splintering of lances will reverberate around the ancient site, as the all-new Wars of the Roses Live jousting spectacle takes centre stage.
Now is the time to pledge allegiance to either the House of York or the House of Lancaster, two sides of the same fractured family who battled, besieged and betrayed each other for three bloody decades in the fifteenth century. Across England, brother fought brother, cousin slayed cousin, all vying for the English crown. History books tell which side triumphed and who was slain, but now families can feel the heat of battle for themselves as their hearts pump for the glory of England.
A live action horseback battle with jaw-dropping special effects, the Wars of the Roses Live promises to be a fist-thumpingly spectacular show of knightly heroism demanding bold battle strategy and fearless fighting from both sides.
