The Vikings

The Vikings is a re-enactment Society dedicated to recreating the life and times of the Dark Age period, not only the battles and skirmishes of the period, but also the dress, crafts and every-day life of the different peoples of that time. Founded in 1971, The Vikings are the oldest and largest Dark Age re-enactment society in the UK.

The Vikings have over 1,500 members throughout Britain, and in Europe, Canada and the US. We portray events from the famous Viking raid at Lindisfarne in 793 AD to the Norman Invasion of 1066 where William claimed the crown of England after the Battle of Hastings.

Our aim is always to provide an accurate and educational portrayal of the Early Mediaeval period whilst ensuring a memorable and enjoyable day for those who come to watch our events.
