Forthcoming Events

Important: Due to the situation with COVID-19 most events by The Vikings are likely to be cancelled this year.

This list contains only events that were officially announced before the lockdown. Many others including a number of major events were planned but never announced.

There won't be any events while the advice against large gatherings is in force: Once it is lifted we hope to get back to doing shows as quickly as possible, but there will inevitably be some events after that date that can't go ahead as there may not be time to complete preparations.

This is a list of confirmed society events (excluding school visits), where you can see battle re-enactments and demonstrations of dark age crafts and everyday life. We're still waiting for confirmation and details for many events including this year's major shows. (Events are organised by our parent society The Vikings and it's member groups.)

Sat 10 - Sun 11 Oct 2020

Re-live the atmosphere and tension, as warriors clash in the re-enactment of the Battle of Hastings. Witness the action on the date that changed history and immerse yourself in early medieval life. An action packed and entertaining event for all the family.
