Join the city wide celebration of York’s Norse heritage

Recognised as the largest event of its kind in Europe; visit York in February 2020 for an exciting programme of events, including living history encampments, markets, workshops, talks, tours and dramatic combat performances. Whether you’re well-versed in the sagas or looking for a thrilling half-term break, there’s something for everyone at JORVIK Viking Festival.

This year’s theme is the Voyages of the Vikings – just like the Norse in the 9th century, journey to York in February half term to discover their extraordinary stories!

Tickets for highlight events are on sale now, with the full programme released in 2020. You can find out more at our dedicated festival website:

JORVIK Viking Festival 2020 is organised and funded by York Archaeological Trust, with no external funding or sponsorship, and all proceeds contribute to our work as an educational charity.
