Join the action as the Vikings of JORVIK celebrate the ‘Return of the Vikings’ with two days of Norse-inspired music, games and battle displays!

Coppergate Square will be transformed for a Viking celebration! Expect to see special combat demonstrations, experience dramatic retellings of the Sagas and be transported back in time when you hear beautiful Viking-inspired music. Plus, keep the little ones entertained with some hilarious Viking games and competitions as well as Norse crafting activities.

Once you’ve enjoyed all this it’s time to explore more of York’s rich Norse heritage with a visit to the new JORVIK Viking Centre, where you will be able to discover the sights, sounds and of course, smells of Viking-age York.

Don't worry if you haven't pre-booked, as you can enjoy all the Norse-action in Coppergate before buying your JORVIK tickets on the door.
