Join the vicious Viking adventure!
Chiltern Open Air Museum will be invaded by a hoard of vicious Vikings on 20th and 21st August 2016!
Come and meet the Viking warriors, see their weapons and battle gear, hear the sounds of the melee and witness a Viking victory retold in a saga of the battle.
Watch demonstrations of the fighting styles and techniques used by the Vikings, along with displays of weaponry and combat prowess.
You will even be able to pit yourselves against these fearsome warriors (limited numbers; children under 10 only) in the ‘Kiddie Vike’ arena.
The re-enactors’ encampment will be set up for campaign with crafts, cooking and talks on weapons, armour and Viking life – come and see what it was really like on a Viking battle campaign!
Visitor Experience Manager Siân Hammerton-Fraser says: “This is the third year that the Museum has been invaded by Vikings! They’re so popular with our visitors that we’ve brought them back for a further taste of Viking history. But who will be brave enough to take them on this year?”
This is a great fun and educational day out for the family: pack a picnic and indulge in a bit of history!
