Viking Festival this weekend

The Vikings arrived in England in 789 AD and their presence here lasted until 1066, when the invading Norsemen lost their final battle with the English at Stamford Bridge. Their influence on our county was profound, and it will be celebrated this weekend, Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th October, at the Skegness Viking Festival.

You can explore a living encampment and smell the Vikings cooking, watch them making arrows or sharpening their swords and even and have a go yourself. On Saturday evening, from 5pm to 7:30pm, down on the beach you can witness the largest Viking battle these shores have seen for years! Fire jugglers and a firework display will finish off the evening.              Continue reading
