Dragon Slayer: Slaying the last days of Holiday season at Warwick Castle

And now the last weeks of Summer Holidays and trying to catch all the goodies out there. If you notice the parks and attractions are reducing their prices, and we actually don’t have time to do all of them, so make sure you pick the right one.

My suggestion today is going to Warwick Castle and check the amazing Dragon Slayer show.

Literally a Dragon. I can’t find anywhere one single person that didn’t love it.

What is The Dragon Slayer

Experience a full evening of spectacular entertainment combining fearless fire jousting, perilous stunt riding and epic battles with a breath-taking light projection show finale complete with live actors, pyrotechnics, fireworks and more.

Dragon Slayer performances run on selected dates throughout August, please see the calendar below for dates.

The Dragon Slayer show is in partnership with The Knights of Middle England.

What Time the gates Open

Well, here is the twist. The gates and the show itself starts at 7.30pm. Then it goes throughout the night until the Big finale by around 10 pm… ish. Some say is suitable for more than 8+ kids, but Richie is almost 5 and loves this.


What to expect

A mix of Game of Thrones with Merlin and King Arthur. The Story is between the love of the local Hero Guy de Warwick and Princess Felice. It’s suitable for everyone, but the show consists of smoke, strobing lights, real fire and a lot of action fights.

The Food

It’s not permitted to take food. Depending on your ticket (see below), you will have access to the Digbeth Dining Club (Street food), or the Hog Roast (a meal and a drink, very medieval style) or the great Banquet (3 course meal, with refillable drinks, wine and beer as well) at the Great Hall.

The Tickets

The show runs out till the end of August, but the sooner you buy your ticket, the cheaper will be. Every person pays the same. The day ticket will NOT give you an entry for the night, the Dragon Slayer event is a different ticket, and children pay the same as an adult, even the food is the same price for children. Your ticket, even the cheapest ones, will have car park included.

Check the tickets at the Warwick Castle website.
