Warwick Castle recreates history with new Dragon Slayer show

Date Posted: 06/08/2018

Dragon Slayer features thrilling combat, great acting and an evening of fun, says Group Leisure & Travel’s Laura Sexton, after attending the premiere of the show.

The new show, bringing to life the story of Guy of Warwick, joins the castle’s entertainment offering running on selected dates in August and potentially again in 2019. 

For pre-booked groups anticipating the show, or to any GTOs considering a last-minute visit, features of the show include fire-eaters, a bird of prey display, jousting re-enactments and a visual light display within the castle grounds.

About the Dragon Slayer

The performance tells the 10th century story of the journey of Guy of Warwick as he battled beasts to win the heart of Princess Felice, the Earl of Warwick’s daughter.

Combining fire, jousts, equestrian acrobatics, stunts, and captivating performances, the evening show, which includes an interactive procession through the castle grounds, has something for everyone. 

The show is bookable for large groups and different packages are available, including the bronze, silver and gold packages with a variety of options including catering.

From the moment you are welcomed through the gates by the Medieval Earl of Warwick to watching the jousting tournament as the sun sets over the castle, you’re in for a truly memorable experience. The highlight of the show takes place within the castle’s courtyard, and features a light display projected onto the castle.
