The performance area of the Tournament Gallery.

Tournament Gallery

The Tournament area serves two functions:

When there are no live performances monitors nearby will show a tournament film. For the younger visitors, there are two interactive computer games, The arming of Henry VIII and Heraldry, are also included.

The gallery symbol used throughout is in the form of a jousting helm together with a rich colour purple. The colour signified wealth in early times because of the great cost of the expensive dyes needed to produce it.
