2023 Headline Act: The Knights of Albion

The Knights of Albion, a UK premier jousting team, will be battling it out in an exhibition of exhilarating horsemanship in the Discover Ilkley arena at the 2023 Ilkley Carnival.

Cheer for the Black Knight or the Golden Prince as they joust for the favour of fair maidens, turn a blind eye to cheating squires, and laugh at the antics of the naughty jester!!

The Knights of Albion will be performing at 12.45pm after the parade and presentations and again at 3pm.  Other arena acts include ND Dance and Owl Adventures ‘Birds of Prey’.

Adjacent to the main area, the Ilkley Rocks stage and the Acoustic Marquee will give you a flavour of local bands and solo performers throughout the afternoon, a full line up will be added to our website soon.
