The Dark Knight was definitely on the rise at Roundhay Park Leeds on the weekend of 29th July!
See the men at arms along with their squires as they joust and do battle on the Soldiers Field.
The distant thunder of the mighty steeds over a fanfare of trumpets sends a tingle of anticipation through the expectant crowd.
The Black Knight has come to do battle and boos ring out at his underhand and dastardly deeds and his evil entourage.
There is laughter too, at the antics of a drunken Sir Fredrick, the only Knight left in the Kingdom fool hardy enough to support the White Knight's cause.
