Life in a Middle Ages Castle Assembly – Banquet, Battle and Joust

Life in a Middle Ages Castle Assembly is a Key Stage II class play or assembly, our narrator and student become time travellers to the Middle Ages – in a brief but highly eventful visit to a medieval castle!

Three scenes – Banquet, Joust and Battle – in which our time travellers find themselves participating in ways they could never have imagined!

Cast of 30 – easily adaptable up or down; duration around 15 – 20 minutes.

Another script is available from entitled Castles and Knights but this is more for Key Stage I – even though it is suggested it could be adapted to Key Stage II. There is also a script entitled St. George and the Dragon which is suitable for Key Stage I.

Squire:                  Now, come along! We can’t keep this lot waiting! We’ll have a riot on our hands if you don’t start soon!

Toby:                     But we don’t know what to do!

Squire:                  (Taking lance) Here! Hold it like this and just charge at each other on horseback! Nothing to it!

Narrator & Toby:              (Exclaiming together) What?
