Knight Club

Film following novice knights Rob, Dan, Gwilym and Sam as they battle for Britain at the Battle of the Nations 2013, the world's biggest and most brutal period tournament.

Film following the British team at the Battle of the Nations 2013, the world's biggest and most brutal period tournament held in the French countryside. Knight Club is the story of Rob, Dan, Gwilym and Sam, a gallant band of English and Welsh knights, who are part of the fledgling debut British team. Dressed head to toe in clanking armour and wielding mighty swords their quest is to defeat the vicious Russians, the terrifying Israelis and the aggressive Americans. This is no re-enactment, this is the real deal, and with only a few weeks training under their chainmail, is at best ambitious, at worst foolhardy. But the novice knights have that bulldog spirit and, draped in the flag of St. George, they have hope in their hearts and a Ford Transit full of axes, maces and broadswords.
