This year’s Vikings at the Gild Hall in Formby was possibly the best event we have so far staged at this site, with around 800 locals braving a warm but cloudy day. This event saw an extended arena program, bright and interesting stalls, plenty of costumed participants, the Viking ship in full crusader livery, Rob’s stable full of birds, a giant Viking chess board, glitter tattoos and fire dancing!
To top it all off, we even got a clean bill of health for our tented village from the local fire department – and even they loved our authentic Viking pies – who wouldn’t!
Overnight camping was encouraged on Friday night and the Fornebei & Krossabyr Herfolk treated campers to a mead and soup social, which looks to become a regular feature.
It is with a heavy heart that we announce in this year of change, the loss of Vikings Sonnie and Linda, who have more re-enactment years between them than the rest of us put together, but have decided to take more of a backseat role in future events.
