Formby's 4th Annual Viking and Medieval Market

ON Saturday, 24 September 2016, the 4th Annual Viking Medieval Market was held at the Gild Hall in Formby, Merseyside. The event is starting to get too big for the venue, as it is now attracting more and more people. It is a fantastic day out, with lots to see and do. From re-enactments, with warriors battling it out in a small arena though to Russ Scott's (aka Erling Rigsson) 27ft long Viking boat were just a few of the attractions. Adults and children could also learn and play Viking Chess (Tafl) and even have their names translated into Viking using the runic alphabet.

That is not forgetting the birds of prey on display, as well as food and drink! This is a very interesting and extremely informative event, that not only has plenty to do and learn, but also has an extremely friendly and inviting bunch of people behind it. Well done to all involved and we are eagerly looking forward to your Library event in Formby; more information on that to follow on here very soon. For now, please enjoy the photos by clicking on here, to see lots more taken at this event... If you missed this 1, do not miss next year's event! Please do let us know what you thought of the event via emailing us to:- .
