Saxon & Viking Ferstival
A few of us are travelling back in time to 'guest' at this 1 day event which runs from 12pm to 8pm. NANMA will be letting folk 'have a go' with our siege engines, trebuchet and perrier: you can also try your hand at 'slinging'.
There will be many different 'dark age' re-enactment groups from around the country descending on the Stonham Barns Showground to a create living history camp dedicated to the Saxon and Viking period.
Each group will give an insight into the culture of the period. There will be lots going on, including cooking, weaving, leathercraft, woodwork, blacksmithing, herbalists, Saga storytelling and Rune readings. Visitors will be able to participate in ‘have a go’ sessions, which will include archery and axe throwing, all handled under supervision by certified instructors.
This is a 1 day event which opens at 12:00 and runs till 20:00.
Re-enactment displays and battles will take place in the show ring from Midday until approx. 5.30pm followed by a BIG BATTLE finale.
A torchlight parade will follow including the fantastic spectacle of the ceremonial burning of a Viking boat.
There will be food and a licensed bar to.
