Meet the Vikings at Abington Park Museum this SundayCulture and tourism
01 April 2022
Viking fans can experience life in the ‘Dark Ages’ this Sunday, 3 April, when the Bifrost Guard Viking re-enactment group set up camp at Abington Park Museum in Northampton.
The group will be on site between 11am and 3pm in their Viking encampment, demonstrating striking coins, leather stamping, whittling and necklace making, as well as giving combat demonstrations at 12, 1 and 2pm.
Children’s crafts, including Viking finger puppet, shield or axe making, along with dressing up and talks about Viking life, will also take place inside the museum on the day.
The Bifrost Guard are known for their authentic re-enactments and knowledge, so this is a great opportunity to learn about the Viking’s ancient culture, traditions and crafts.
Admission to the ‘Viking Mania’ day is free, with a small charge for craft activities. This event is taking place alongside the Valhalla Viking exhibition at Northampton Museum and Art Gallery, which runs until 18 April.
