King Arthurs Knight School Knight Pose with Sword

This summer, King Arthur is preparing for his next quest and has enlisted the team at Oxford Castle & Prison to train his latest recruits for medieval battle.

The Knight School programme consists of an hour-long training session covering the essential skills needed to defeat King Arthur’s enemies. The apprentice knights will be trained in sword handling and fighting, archery skills and jousting skills – the essentials in becoming the ultimate knight. Our Knight School programme is recommended for children aged between 5 and 10 years old. Children must be accompanied by a parent/carer for the duration of the session whilst they have fun and learn these new fighting skills. Each session lasts an hour and is conducted by our qualified staff. All weapons used are safe and child-friendly.

This event starts on the 26th July and takes place 2pm - 3pm every Monday, Wednesday and Friday until 2nd September.

£9.50 per child, £16 for 2 children or £22.50 for 3 children
