The Queen’s Golden Jubilee International Joust

I went to watch the final of this joust at Leeds Armouries today. It was brilliant – very competitive – with lots of galloping horses and splintering lances as the competitors jousted for this beautiful trophy.

The winner of the trophy was Graham Turner, perhaps better know for his medieval artwork.

Here’s Graham in the pre-joust parade and in his armour.
