Viking Invasion Weekend

Anderton Boat Lift
1st September 2018 - 2nd September 2018

The Anderton Boat Lift, near Northwich, known as one of the ‘Seven Wonders of the Waterways’ will be hosting a free, family-friendly, Viking Invasion on Saturday 1 September and Sunday 2 September, between 10am and 3.30pm. 

The event will see the grounds of the Anderton Boat Lift transformed into a Viking settlement with free displays and demonstrations. Staged by Y Ddraig Warriors of Stoke-on-Trent, each day will end with a ‘live’ battle. There is no cost to enter the site.

Visitors are encouraged to look around Y Ddraig’s (the dragons) living history exhibition and ask questions and try out their armour and equipment.

Y Ddraig will be putting on arena combat displays throughout the day and will also be training its youngest warriors, which all children are welcome to join in with.
