Threekingham Viking Festival
16 September - 17 SeptemberFree
Get Hands on with History – Go Berserk with the Vikings!
Saturday 16th to Sunday 17th September Threekingham – an Aveland Odyssey Free Event
Bring the family and spend a weekend invading Threekingham with the Great Heathen Army of 300+ Vikings, to experience the origins of our Danelaw heritage.
The Vikings will recreate for us the Battle of Stow from 870 AD, where they fought with Anglo Saxon defenders – after defeat on the first day, the invaders returned for a rematch and left in triumph!
So come along to watch battle formations and the living history encampment, where the Vikings will give insights into all aspects of their lives.
In the Church, a programme of free lectures will be running over the weekend, sponsored by The Viking Society for Northern Research.
We are delighted to have an archaeologist who will dig a test pit for old and young alike to experience the thrill and painstaking work it takes to identify artefacts from a hole in the ground. What will you uncover?
With free entry, join us to make family memories that are as unique as you are! Enjoy a plentiful array of freshly prepared food and drink, alongside hand-picked market stalls and heritage crafts to catch your eye.
The Viking Festival is part of Heritage Open Days and we are proud to have been sponsored by North Kesteven District Council, along with The Viking Society for Northern Research.
