Ahead of the July invasion of the city centre at the Heritage Festival, the Vikings will be setting up camp at Flag Fen to hone their skills…

Discover what it takes to be a Viking warrior – see archery demonstrations, weapons displays, and battle skirmishes with the local Saxons!

Visit the Viking and Saxon camps to experience life a 1,000 years ago, plus there’ll be plenty of fun family activities.

The Villainous Vikings event will take place on Saturday June 11 and Sunday June 12 from 10am (last entry 4pm).

Prices are £8 for adults, £5 for children, £20 for families (2 adults & 3 children).

If you want to see what a real Viking invasion looks like, don’t miss this year’s Peterborough Heritage Festival on Saturday July 2 and Sunday July 3.

A horde of marauding Vikings will invade the city centre this summer as part of this year’s FREE weekend spectacular – one of the UK’s premier history events.

Vikings and Saxons will battle for control of the city in a brutal display of force, recreating the attack on Peterborough in 870AD, with no quarter given or prisoners taken by either side. It will be the biggest Viking raid on the city for a thousand years!
