The stakes are high for the annual Strongest Viking Competition - who will win a place on our Viking Captain's voyage across the high seas?

With hammer-holding, leg-wrestling, hand-to-hand combat and more, join us to cheer on your favourite Viking champion at this family-friendly contest.
Plus this year we are delighted to welcome the UK Glima Federation for a demonstration of this ancient Viking martial art, steeped in tradition and ancestral honour.
