VIKINGS INVADE FLAG FEN

Prepare to experience an invasion of Vikings as they storm Flag Fen on the weekend of Saturday July 6 and Sunday July  7 !

Watch a full-scale battle between hundreds of warriors (maybe even have a go yourself!), and visit the Viking and Saxon living history camps to experience life 1,000 years ago, plus there’ll be plenty of fun family activities!

Stuart Orme, Heritage Interpretation Manager for Vivacity, told ESP – “We all have an image of what the Vikings were like, a bunch of cut-throats and thieves from the mists of the Dark Ages, but was this really the case? This event will give our visitors the chance to find out for themselves, as we transport them back in time.”

The programme for each day (weather permitting) will include how to train a warrior, archery demonstrations, a talk on clothing in the 9th Century, weapons displays and battle spectaculars!

Opening times are 10am-5pm throughout the weekend. Prices are £6 for adults, £4 for children, £15 for families and under 5s are FREE. Heritage Pass Holders can enter for FREE.
