Like the Vikings, the members of Wulfthorpe like to travel around, meet new people, and acquire shiny new treasures. If you have a special event coming up, we would love to join you in celebrating the history and cultures of medieval Scandinavia and Northern Europe. We’ll be bringing our spears and swords but don’t worry, we won’t pillage your village.
We have been asked to every kind of event you can imagine. We have officiated at weddings, worked with museums, amused at birthday parties, and been in demand at major festivals. Vikings go everywhere. What’s wonderful about having the Vikings at your event is that it is completely scalable — everything from photo opportunities and answering questions about the Viking age all the way up to a full Viking encampment.
Your investment is as varied as the events. To discover how to add Vikings to your next event, contact Snorri Torvikson.
