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.
