King Arthur Lives On In Cornwall

Knight Time Extravaganza’

Knight Time Extravaganza’

The legend of King Arthur will be brought to life this summer as a new live experience launches in north Cornwall.

Set at the Arthurian Centre near Camelford, ‘Knight Time Extravaganza’ promises visitors a unique evening of entertainment with fantasy, feasting and adventure.

Starting on Tuesday 24 July, fighting knights, live action, jesters and slapstick comedy help tell medieval tales alongside a mouth-watering feast of locally-sourced food.

On the very site where King Arthur fought his last battle, visitors can explore the medieval village and watch tales of legend unfold before them in the big top tent.

Rob Gray of Discovery Attractions, the team behind the shows, said: “Knight Time Extravaganza is a unique show to Cornwall, it will really offer something different for our visitors. The show is action-packed all evening and uses comedy, illusion and music.

“The fighting knights taking part in the show have previously starred in the BBC series Merlin, while the armour used was originally created for the 2011 movie Sucker Punch. With jugglers and fight sequences, the show is great family entertainment. It’s an evening out that people of all ages will enjoy.”

Fully armoured knights will be on hand to welcome guests with a reception drink and canapés in the medieval village.

Visitors will be taken to their table by their knight, before cheering him on as he battles the others in an action-packed show of fighting and storytelling.

During the show a two-course Cornish feast will be served: on the menu is a local fire pit- roasted hog from Snout & Trotter in Bude; ice cream from Helsett Farm in Boscastle; ale from Skinner’s Brewery; and Penzance’s Cornish Mead.

Other local suppliers include Barnecutt’s bakery, Wadebridge Wines and The Riverside, Boscastle. Vegetarian and child-friendly options are also available.

Mr Gray said: “Cornwall has a great reputation for its food and drink, so we felt that sourcing all of our food locally is the only option. Not only are we providing our guests with great food, but it will also be contributing to the local economy.”

Starting on Tuesday 24 July, the shows will be take place every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evening throughout July and August, with the final shows on 4 and 5 September.

Beginning at 7pm, entertainment is provided throughout the evening – as well as a Knight’s School for the youngsters – with the event finishing at around 10.15pm.

Tickets are priced at £34.50 for children under the age of 15 and adult ticket prices are £39.50. This includes all entertainment, meal, drinks on arrival and at the table. Coach travel is included in the ticket price and is available from holiday parks and central locations across Cornwall. Family tickets are available priced £120 for two adults and two children, with additional childrent £20 each.

Tickets can be booked through Event Cornwall
