It takes place between 14th and 23rd February in York, UK, and is organised by the Jorvik Centre. There are a number of events taking place such as:-
meet the vikings
evening with the vikings including drinking (of course!), norse ballads, etc
traditional viking wedding
viking walks along river ouse
more FOOD n DRINK!!!!
saga night (self explanatory with lots of FOOD n DRINK)
viking raiders, traders and settlers
longship river challenge
It ends with Death in the Dark which is a battle between two viking forces.
Basically if you're into norse mythology, music, food, DRINK, vikings, violence etc a good time will be had by all. If you want a break from the vikings there's always the rest of York to look around. If you don't enjoy it we comes and beats you up (with big clubs).
