Little did Sam realise that accepting a chance offer to ride as a medieval knight at a city festival in 1970 would not only change his life, but that it would also change his family, friends and eventually the lives of many people from different countries. A highly amusing account of Sam Humphrey's thirty five years running the Nottingham Jousting Association. How it developed from a small amateur competition group, into a major spectator show, with a worldwide appeal. How a group of young teenagers with no acting experience would become polished entertainers, who eventually travelled to many countries around the world, performing to huge audiences of many thousands in specially constructed arenas. They would meet Princes, Princesses, Presidents and many famous people in the world of Pop, Film and TV.
The tale charters the many great highs and deep lows of a life on the road with twenty or so, wild young men, travelling the world, with their horses, performing incredibly dangerous shows, day after day. How it made some of them, and broke others. How drinking, partying and endless pranks helped them cope with the constant injuries. It would meld them into a close knit Band of Brothers that holds firm to this day. Many have become highly successful businessmen but they have never forgotten their old jousting comrades. A fast moving ever changing tale!
