There will also be spectacular arena displays, including agility dogs and birds of prey shows. You’ll also have the chance to step back in time and experience life on a Viking encampment.
Talented craftsmen will also be showcasing a variety of skills, including chainsaw and woodcarving activities, willow weaving and stick making.
