Heysham Viking Festival

Heysham, Morecambe

Medium Event

The annual Heysham Viking Festival is back for a third year bigger and better than ever.

Wander around the living history encampment where you can encounter Viking craftsmen, storytellers and warriors and, perhaps, even get to hold a real sword or axe, and try on a helmet or iron shirt of mail. In the arena see warriors demonstrate the use of the fearsome Viking weapons, and at 3:30pm on both days watch as the Saxons, together with their Scottish allies, defend their land against the great Viking leader Ragnall, on his way to conquer York. 

Open from 10:30am to 5pm. Admission free.
