2020 marks the 500th anniversary of The Field of Cloth of Gold – the most spectacular tournament ever held. As guardian of some of Henry VIII’s most magnificent armours and the home of international jousting the Royal Armouries in Leeds is marking the anniversary with a special tournament over the May bank holiday weekend (23 – 25 May 2020). Our purpose-built tiltyard will resound to the clash of metal on armour and the thunder of hooves as internationally renowned jousters battle for coveted trophies, glory and honour. The king and his court will be in attendance, and the museum bedecked in Tudor splendour. There will be two shows per day at 12 noon and 3pm on Saturday 23, Sunday 24 and Monday 25 May . Wheelchair users and visitors with disabilities To allow us to facilitate your visit please email or call 0113 220 1888 (Mon -Fri 10am -5pm) to discuss your requirements and to book tickets. There are 8 wheelchair spaces available per show and free personal assistant tickets are available on request.
