THE KNIGHTS OF MIDDLE ENGLAND
Back in Medieval times jousting was the ultimate sporting entertainment event, Knights were the heroes of their time, battling it out to be crowned Tournament champion. We are bringing this most fabled and historic sport into the 21st Century at Polo on the Beach with a high octane, action packed jousting display.
The Knights of Middle England bring over 20 years of jousting experience in live shows and are a team of professional horseman, stunt riders, actors and performers.
Led by professional horseman, actor, Sky TV presenter and polo player, Karl Ude-Martinez, the team travel worldwide to shows and events – including as far as Dubai where they performed at the Al Maktoum Challenge. They have also performed at the Horse of the Year Show at the NEC Birmingham and provide live jousting shows for Merlin Entertainment at Warwick Castle.
Some of the team have worked on various hit TV shows & Films including ‘Assassins Creed’, ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’, ‘Game of Thrones’, ‘Victoria’, and ‘The Crown’.
Last year at Polo on the Beach they created an exciting show which entertained audiences of all ages. There were evil black knights with gallant heroic knights trying to defeat them, plenty of fast action hard hitting contact jousting, fights, fire, stunts and rearing horses.
