There will be a lot going on, so I'm sure you're wondering what's included in the ticket price.
Full weekend tickets will give you access to the duration of the festival. The event will be going on from Friday 28th July 2023 to Sunday 30th July 2022, but you can set up camp Friday morning and pack up on Monday morning. (Volunteers can show up on Thursday or Wednesday with valid pre-festival application approved in advance). Weekend tickets are available with or without the feast.
Your weekend ticket with the feast will get you a seat in our Mead Hall all three nights of the festival, and includes food and drink during the great feasts which will last ~3 hours. Outside of the feast times or if your ticket does not include the feast, you can purchase food and various drinks from the the More Mead Company bar and other vendors, check out our Food & Drink page. You can't bring your own food or drinks onto the main festival site, these are only allowed on the campsite. The feast hall is open to all outside of the feast times and will feature love entertainment during the day and evening.
Just take a seat at our long tables during The Feast along side hundreds of other Vikings and Heathens and let the food, mead, ale and more come to you as we line the tables and fill your horns.
The entertainment that will be going on around you will be a mix of paid for and included in the ticket price. Entertainment included in the cost of the ticket includes things like the reenactment battles, live music performances, story tellers, fire dancers, talks on various subjects, demonstrations, animal displays/shows to name but a few. Activities (archery, workshops, craft sessions, axe throwing, taking photographs with the animals) are NOT included in the price, they will cost extra. The fees are to be paid to the people holding the activities. Some of the activities can be booked in advance, some you can just walk up to. These details will be published on our festival program page as the are arranged or become available.
Day tickets come only with private without feast access. If you have a day ticket, you will not be permitted in the Great Hall during the feast hours unless you have a separate Day Geast Access ticket, but you will be able to enjoy some drinks at the paid bar awaiting the story tellers and fire dancers to begin outside of feast times even if you don't have Feast access.
Tickets are non-transferable and can't be resold. In case of group bookings, the person named on the order will have to be part of the group in case of group tickets and all who enter must present ID before being issued a wrist band. Tickets will be available for download shortly.
