Heysham Viking Festival

Now in its fourth year, the Heysham Viking Festival will be taking place between the 20th and 21st July from 10.30am. This phenomenally popular event attracts hordes of Viking lovers from around the Morecambe Bay area and beyond, with special talks, re-enactments and other fun-filled activities.

There will be a weapons display and various battle re-enactments, all brought to you by an enthusiastic team of Viking reenactors from across the UK. In addition to the educational programme and events, there will also be a range of craft and food stalls and a fun fair, providing entertainment for big kids and little kids alike.

The North West of England has a fascinating and bloody Viking history, when it was settled in the 10th century. The events planned over the course of the festival weekend will explore that past in much more detail, giving a real insight into what life was like under Viking rule.
