The Northumbria Vikings can be booked to provide a re-enactment display tailored to suit your needs, however, shows generally fall into one of three categories as explained on the right.

If you would like to confirm or discuss a booking for any type of event then please contact the group leader by email at


If a compact display is all that is needed then the Northumbria Vikings can provide a living history of around 6 to 10 tents displaying crafts and cooking, and including weaponry demonstrations. A single day weekend show will cost from £600.00 depending on location.  2 days start at  £900.00.


A larger show with more people can be arranged with the Northumbria Vikings and help from our neighbouring viking groups. A typical medium show will have at least 10 to 15 tents in the living history encampment and increased numbers of warriors usually allows a small skirmish to be provided. A typical weekend medium show will cost from £1,750.00 and be one or two days long.


Northumbria Vikings can take bookings for the whole national Vikings Society if a large scale spectacular event is considered appropriate. These shows typically attract 30 or more living history tents and a battlefield display of 80 warriors. Such a large show needs considerable space and generally lasts a full weekend ; 3 days over bank holidays. A full society event costs from £4,500.00 depending on exact details.
