Nothing happened until 2007 when a small number of re-enactors came to the village hall. There were Living History and warrior displays.A 40 foot replica longboat came by river from York (53 miles) and caused a great spectacle as it arrived by torchlight at the picnic area full of Viking warriors.
In 2010 over 150 re-enactors from 'The Vikings' society put on a full display of events including the Battle at the Playing Fields.
In 2011 more re-enactors came and put on an even bigger show - see other pages.
2012 - EVEN BIGGER - 2 days of events and entertainment.
The future -an annual event to rival Hastings!
