Jesters & Jugglers at Leeds Castle
18 - 24
We are holding auditions throughout the half
term period to choose a Court Jester for the summer season. Each
family will be given a voting card on entry for them to vote for
their favourite Jester at the end of the day.
Will you chuckle quietly, split your sides
laughing or blow a raspberry whilst you judge our wonderful
contestants? All want to be the lucky winner, crowned as Leeds
Castle Court Jester. Judge them on skill, costume, entertainment
value and pure laughter. Write their number on your voting card and
the top six chosen by you will go forward to final selection.
