Get your business involved with the Festival Fringe

Every year, JORVIK Viking Festival offers York businesses the chance to join in the action by offering a special event or discount throughout the Festival. It’s a fantastic opportunity to get involved with an event that attracts tens of thousands of visitors to the city, and generates over £6million for the York economy.

What can I offer?

It can be anything; a specially-themed event, a discount for participants and visitors or even a Viking-inspired window display. As long as it helps promote the Vikings influence on York it can be part of the Fringe programme.


Here are a few ideas:

Visitor Attractions

  • Themed crafting activities
  • Talks/Tours
  • Special Screenings
  • Special ticketed events / performances


  • Promotional discounts for customers with JORVIK Viking Centre /Festival tickets (10% off buy one get one free etc..)
  • Themed menu options throughout the week
  • Special ticketed events (tasting evening etc..)


  • Promotional discounts for customers with JORVIK Viking Centre / Festival tickets (10% off buy one get one free etc..)
