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.
It’s £2 to get involved in the fun and there is no need to book in advance.
The museum also hosts community cabinet exhibitions every couple of months and the next opening event is on Saturday August 29 from 10am until 12pm for the Royston and District Family History Society.
