Children will have the chance to be knighted as Warwick Castle will be handing out Lord and Ladyships on Sunday (April 14). It will mark 30 years since the launch of a much-loved exhibition known as The Kingmaker.

The Kingmaker is a walk-through exhibition that has been a key part of the historic venue since 1994. Visitors will be able to take a journey back in time to 15th-century England.

Kids will also receive a title of a Lordship or Ladyship, a personalised title certificate embossed with gold foil, and ownership of five square feet of dedicated land within the Hougun Manor Estate.

Richard Neville, the 16th Earl of Warwick was known as The Kingmaker. His support at the battle of Towton in 1461 led to the victory and eventual coronation of King Edward IV.

As his power over Warwick gave him the ability to rise to the throne and control the King of England, Neville became known as The Kingmaker. Guests will be able to step back in time as they are transported to the night before the Battle of Barnet.

Organisers say the first 30 guests to visit Warwick Castle will be knighted by the Duke and receive a Lordship or Ladyship. Children will also receive a personalised title certificate in the post and ownership of five square feet of dedicated land.

Liam Bartlett, General Manager at Warwick Castle, said: “The Kingmaker is a much-loved immersive experience and has been a guest favourite since its opening in 1994.

“It brings history to life and lets guests feel like they are back in 1461 with the sights, sounds and smells that The Kingmaker would have experienced himself.”
