York's Viking Festival
On Saturday, the camera club held an Out and About Event at York's Viking Festival. The annual festival is recognised as the largest event of its kind in Europe, and is a city-wide celebration of York’s rich Norse heritage.
This year, the festival remembered legendary Vikings whose role in the sagas is often forgotten – the women who schemed, fought and led their people through turbulent times. Across the city there was an exciting programme of events, plus living history encampments, talks, tours and of course, dramatic combat performances.
The images in the gallery below shows what a fantastic day was had and the striking and dramatic photos which were taken.
