Sword skills and jousting will be part of skills shown to youngsters visiting a Kent historical attraction over Easter.

The Canterbury Tales is reopening the gates to its extremely popular Medieval Story Garden for the end of term break where Knight's Tournament will take place.

Sword skills, mock jousting and a lesson in medieval remedies will be among the activities offered to visitors as part of their admission ticket.
