Explore their encampment and witness spectacular displays of combat.

Hear tales of daring conquests and learn about the weapons and skills which made the Vikings feared throughout Europe.

There will even be a chance for your young warriors to learn some battle skills and take part in their own Viking skirmish!

The Viking event is on from Saturday August 28 to Monday August 30, 11am to 4pm.
