Vikings will invade a Weston park this weekend for a day packed with battles and re-enactments.

Weston Museum has organised the living history event, which will take place in Grove Park, in High Street.

The main attraction will be the Hildsvin Re-enactment Group, which will show what life was like in the Viking era, including what they ate, the games they played and their fighting techniques.

The museum team will also be available so people can learn more about its refurbishment ahead of its re-opening on August 26.

The museum’s next event will be its re-opening on August 26, where it will be winding the clock back to 19th century Weston.

The celebrations, from 10am-3pm, will include stilt-walkers, acrobatics, circus skills and games.

Visitors will also be able to enjoy the refurbished museum following its £1.6million makeover.

There will be new galleries to explore, and new activities to take part in. Entry is free.
