~A typical Saturday afternoon strolling through Preston city centre could see us face many different people in many different circumstances. Often you see homeless people unshaved,  wearing poorly dressed clothes. On the other spectrum you often see charity fundraisers in bright clothes and looking well kempt supporting the charity they believe in.

Can you imagine the looks on people’s faces if The Vikings suddenly appeared taking us back to the Dark Ages with the appropriate weaponry and attire to fit the era?

On Saturday 13th July 2019 ‘Vikings on the Flag Market’ are taking over Preston City centre. It will take place from 12pm - 4pm. Admission is completely free.

It’s an opportunity to experience a Viking life dating back over 1000 years ago. This isn’t just a local thing. The Vikings are the UK’s oldest and largest Viking-age society, with branches across Britain, Europe, the US and Canada.

This, and many other events are part of the weekly entertainment available every Saturday between now and the 31st August. Keep an eye out for weekly updates on Summer Saturdays at the Flag Market by accessing the CCG website every Sunday afternoon till the end of August.

The Vikings mission is to educate and entertain whilst bringing the Dark Ages to life using well-researched equipment and lifestyles. For more information please visit www.vikingsonline.org.uk

Witness the Dark Ages come to life...
