Australia vs England Jousting Tournament A.E.J.T

Two great nations with a fierce sporting rivalry head to head in the original extreme sport of jousting at the inaugural Australia vs England Jousting Tournament.

On the 2nd and 3rd of November, Kryal Castle, Ballarat will host this fierce clash for the sacred urn containing the ashes of a lance ceremonially burned at Arundel Castle in England.

“England may have invented jousting, but Australia perfected it” says the Australian team captain and solid lance world champion, Phillip Leitch.

For two days, over four sessions of jousting, three of the best competitors of each country will bring their brutal best against on the hallowed ground of Kryal Castle’s tournament arena. In 2018, for the first time, an Australia competed at the auspicious “Royal Armouries Easter Tournament” in the United Kingdom and won! Now it’s England’s chance to balance the ledger when they travel to Australia. We will discover who are the greatest jousters in the Commonwealth.

Saturday 2nd November

11:30 Session 1

Sunday 3rd November

The Tournament is run alongside all the regular activities services and entertainment available at Kryal Castle including Archery, Pantomimes, Knights School, Pony Rides, Wizards Workshop. Food, drink as well as on site accommodation are also available.

For those who are adventurous, after dark you may wish to take part in Kryal Castles “The Watchers” interactive horror experience. The undead have risen and it is up to you to lift the curse that has befallen the land (Bookings Essential).

The Watcher

A darkness has descended upon our castle. It’s not up to you to save us, it’s not up to you to banish it. You only need to survive it.

This Halloween Kryal Castle presents a true horror experience that will leave you with permanent tingles. After provisions (savoury canapes served in our Knights Tower) you’ll be sent out into the dark castle grounds in groups of 8-15. Your aim is to solve a series of traps under a time limit, before “It” catches up. Don’t dally. It’s closer than you think.

IF you survive, you will be rewarded with a round of sweet canapes to ease your nerves upon your return to the Medieval Tavern.  You are invited to stay and warm yourself by the fire and calm your nerves with a stiff drink if you choose and welcome the return of the other survivors .

Game Play runs for around 1 hour, please aim to arrive 15 minutes before your chosen session time.

Tickets include game play and canapes on arrival and conclusion.

Beverages available for purchase in the Knights Tower and Medieval Tavern.

Between Saturday 2 November 2019 7:00 PM and Saturday 2 November 2019 9:00 PM

Murder Mystery – A Night to Die For

Murder Mystery Tickets 

On the night of a royal wedding joining two kingdoms as one, the young bride is found in her chambers, viciously murdered. But who committed this heinous crime? Tensions are palpable as the rulers of three kingdoms deny responsibility for the tragedy. However, one of them is lying through their teeth.

Journey throughout the Castle walls to witness secret rendezvous, question suspects, and uncover clues before the evidence runs cold. Remember, everyone is guilty until proven innocent, and until the killer is discovered, no one is safe, even you.

If you like Game of Thrones, you will love this gripping tale about the struggle for power, the lust for blood, and the fear of the blade. Guess the murderer correctly, and you will not only save many lives, but you may also win a killer prize!
