The Knights of Valour will bring jousting action to the Anderson Farm Museum May 30.

“Watch and enjoy as you are entertained by exhibitions of horsemanship and live steel combat,” a press release said.

“Demonstrations include bare-back riding as was done in battle by Alexander the Great, the Roman chariot, Glorious Birds of Prey presented by the Canadian Raptor Conservancy, and Gladiator combat, where two fighters battle for your cheers.

“The climax of the evening will be a full contact heavy armour jousting tournament. Watch as some of North America’s best full contact jousters compete for the title of champion.”

All events are emceed by World Champion jouster and host of History Television’s “Full Metal Jousting,” Shane Adams, Knights of Valour captain and owner.

Most horses of the Knights of Valour are rescued draft horses. All jousting at this event is real, unchoreographed and done by trained professional athletes.

Souvenirs are available, and can be autographed by the competitors and demonstrators.

Gates open at 6 p.m., with the event set to begin at 7 p.m. Tickets cost $15 for general admission, $10 for children ages four to 10 and are free for children three years and under.
