Running alongside the River Aire for 150 metres, with seating on the landward side, is the Arena. Here, weather permitting, we put on exhibitions of military and sporting skill at arms, including jousting.
Though we no longer have our own horses, we still host two important jousting contests each year with competitors from all over the world.
- There is seating for over 1200 people.
- All displays are weather permitting (if the weather is deemed to be unsuitable for the display to take place, an announcement will be given inside the museum before the scheduled start time).
- The gates will close when each display begins.
- Due to lack of space no prams or pushchairs are permitted into the Arena seating area.
