The Vikings are coming!

Easter Sunday 1
Easter Monday 2 April 2018

10.30 am – 4pm (last admissions 4pm)

There is much excitement here at the castle as the build up is underway for the great Easter opening, when a crowd of Vikings will surge into the castle and set up camp to thrill everyone – and scare a few too.

As the real Vikings came in their dragon ships up the river Trent and the river Dove past the castle mound, it is quite a thought in the middle of all the fun that they really did come to this immediate area and raided a convent at nearby Hanbury before moving forward to Repton which was a major Viking site.

If you would like to meet the Vikings of Svartland Living History Society, do come and join us for our Easter Bank Holiday celebrations on Sunday & Monday, 1-2 April. Lots to do and see.

Viking Camp with demonstrations of authentic crafts, skills and pastimes. Viking combat displays.
History Tours, Birds of Prey, Fairground, Easter Egg Hunt,

We do recommend you buy your tickets in advance for this event.
