On Wednesday the 17th of June, Leabank Senior School got a visit from a special guest Steve Heke.
He showed us some of his armour and talked to us about what the tournaments are all about. He is part of a club that practises throughout the week and anyone can go along and join. His armour is handmade and the helmet was really heavy. It has to be strong enough to protect his head. He knew a lot about knights in the olden days and battles. It was really informative and we got to see some olden day weapons and armour that they would have used in the Middle Ages.
