EVENT DESCRIPTION

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

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 Saxon and Viking period – What is referred to as ‘The Dark Ages’.

Each group will give an insight into the way of life and the culture. 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.

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.

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

The licenced bar will be open throughout the event.

There will be hot and cold refreshments and food available to purchase.

Come and celebrate the Dark Ages at Stonham Barns Park!
