Matthew park has been turned into an authentic Viking town.. again! The 2020 festival was a great success and 2021 is just around the corner and will be better than ever with even more Vikings.  Their rivals, the knights have decided to join them this year for a battle to the finish to celebrate all of the honorable warriors and knights of the Viking era!

You can try your hand at archery or axe throwing. There will also be spinning and weaving to watch, traditional items made from wool and leather. Viking food to try. A skilled blacksmith will be forging traditional Viking items. The original Viking fjord horses will also be there. Tell all your friends and come to Norsewood for a great time!
