Due to its popularity, Knight Training for children (ages 5-12) has been extended through the end of 2011 as part of Medieval Times' 20th Anniversary in Chicago. Guests from all around the midwest come to enjoy life as it was in the 11th century complete with four-course meal enjoyed while cheering on their favorite knights in medieval pageantry.

Hear ye! Hear ye! It has so been decreed that due to the popularity of Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament’s new Knight Training for children – that began in June of this year and was to cease and desist after the Labor Day Weekend – will now continue on in the training of new Junior Knights of the Realm through the end of 2011. The subjects of Chicagoland will bring to mind that Knight Training for children was added this summer, taking place before each Sunday matinee performance of merriment, in honor of Medieval Times’ 20th Anniversary in Chicago. Offered free to children ages 5-12 who hold a ticket to the first Sunday show of the day, Knight Training takes place an hour before show time and children are doth required to wear closed toe and heel shoes, as befitting a true knight.

As the lads and ladies step verily for the first time behind the scenes and onto the arena floor, they learn the ways of being noble and just, while also safely wielding a sword and comporting thyselves in true knightly manner. The up close and personal Knight Training sessions are given by the Castle’s own Knights and hosted by the Lord Chancellor and the King himself! The young Knights-in-Training begin as serfs and work their way up to a group knighting ceremony where they henceforth are known as Sir and Lady. The site of their specialized training is the 11th century-styled Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament castle, located at 2001 N. Roselle Road, Schaumburg, IL.

After the Knight Training session, the newly knighted youngsters return to the Hall of Arms and await the grand call to table with all the royal patrons. Once seated, they watch and cheer with the rest of the noble audience as they witness a jousting tournament, medieval games of skills and sword fighting for honor, all while feasting on a bountiful four-course dinner fit for a king.
