About this Event

Come to Stonham Barns for this fantastic one-day event celebrating all things Viking and Saxon

There will be over 15 different re-enactment groups from around the country which will descend on the Stonham Barns Showground creating a living history camp made up solely of the Viking and Saxon period – What is referred to as The Dark Ages.

These different groups will give an insight into the way of life of Viking and Saxon culture. You will come across cooking, weaving, leathercraft, woodwork, blacksmithing, herbalists, Saga story-telling and rune reading. Visitors will be able to try some ‘have a go sessions’ such as archery and axe throwing. All handled under supervision by certified instructors.

Re-enactment displays and battles will take place in the show ring from 12.00 pm-5.30 pm finishing with a BIG BATTLE from 5.30 pm-6.15 pm

The big outside finale of the day will take place at 6.30 pm with a torchlight parade followed by the fantastic spectacle of a Viking Ceremonial Boat burning at 6.45 pm.

In The Barn there will be activities taking place throughout the day including screenings of Hollywood Viking themed films, local interest Dark Age films, talks on weaving, way of life, demos and crafts, live folk music and children’s activities including face painting and shield, sword and helmet making with cardboard.

The bar will be open from noon through to the event finish at 8.00 pm. Refreshments, barbeque, hot food, and drinks will be available throughout the day.
