This Sunday, August 12th, The Vikings of Middle England will be staging a dynamic and exciting re-enactment event in the atmospheric grounds of Tatton's Tudor Old Hall.

Around 30 re-enactors will be setting up an authentic Viking camp at the Old Hall and demonstrating the domestic side of Viking life. They will be joined by The Viking Long Ship Experience who will show that Vikings were traders as well as raiders and invaders. Visitors can learn about the Viking way of life through other living history activities such as story telling, blacksmithing, cooking over open fires and coin-striking.

A number of other displays will keep young and older visitors entertained from storytelling to the opportunity to try on armour and test out their own expertise with an archer's longbow.

The event runs from 12pm to 5pm (last entry 4pm) at the Old Hall.

Prices: adults £7, child £5, Family £19 (2 adults and up to 3 children).

Normal Parkland Vehicle entry of £7 per car applie; additional small charge for Have-a-Go Archery.
