It’s time to raise the drawbridge and man the barricades as viking reenactors are planning a Royston invasion on Saturday.
As well as Britain’s oldest and largest viking reenactors The Vikings plotting their incursion from the far shores of Heydon, children can get involved in some authentic activities, such as longboat and brooch making, flour grinding, and the chance to write your own name in runes.
The event will run from 10.30am until 3.30pm and it costs just £2 to get involved in the craft activities.
Museum curator Jenny Oxley said: “As well as the special event on Saturday, our Crafty Wednesdays are being well attended.”
The next Crafty Wednesday event will be held this week, and it’s the turn of the dinasaurs with themed activities for kids.
