Watch Tom Hardy fight in medieval battle in Sussex

Tom Hardy took part in a medieval fight during a jousting festival in Sussex – check out the footage below.

The actor attended the annual Loxwood Joust event on Sunday (August 13), where he was seen engaged in battle dressed in a helmet, armour and chainmail.

In a post on his Instagram Story, Hardy wrote: “This might have happened today… Random day out in the English countryside nipping to the shops.”

“Thanks for the beatings,” he added, tagging both Loxwood Joust and Invicta Battle Heritage.

A number of attendees have since shared pictures with Hardy from the event. You can check out some of the posts below:

According to the event’s website, Loxwood Joust is described as the UK’s “most spectacular immersive medieval and jousting festival”.


“Step back in time to experience the verve and vigor of a world where lives were harsh and hearts were full of passion at this unique, fun and educational day out for all the family,” reads the description.

Last year, Hardy was a surprise competitor at a charity jiu-jitsu competition in Wolverhampton, where he managed to win two gold medals.

The actor, who is known for roles in Peaky Blinders, Mad Max: Fury Road and The Dark Knight Rises, next stars in action thriller Havoc from director Gareth Evans. The film is scheduled to be released later this year.
