Warwickshire’s Essential Entertainment Guide

Entertainment of the highest calibre is always assured at Warwick Castle, but next month the venue ups the ante once again with the return of its popular Dragon Slayer evening shows.
Back for 2019 following a hugely popular run last year, the show is guaranteed to delight visitors of all ages. Performances feature displays of fearless horseback fire-jousting, perilous stunt riding and a ‘dazzling’ confrontation between Guy - a heroic figure likened to Robin Hood and Saint George - and his nemesis, the fire-breathing dragon.
Unique to the Midlands, Dragon Slayer’s finale features a projection canvas measuring 31 metres by 80 metres and lit with 150,000 lumens of light - the equivalent to more than 500 house lightbulbs.
For 2019, the action in the castle’s main courtyard combines further fiery elements with even more light projection, pyrotechnics and live performance to create ‘the ultimate thrilling finale’.
For those wishing to experience even more medieval merriment, the venue also offers a hog roast or period-themed banquet to accompany the show.
Show-only tickets start from £20 per person and include car parking.
All bookings must be made online in advance - and bear in mind that shows, particularly on Saturday evenings, tend to sell out fast.
