Vikings will be putting on a spectacular show at a summer fete in Corby at the weekend.

They will be at St John’s Church, in the Old Village, presenting a living history re-enactment on Saturday (June 29).

The Vikings of Mercia, also known as the Stálmenn which means the men of steel in a nod to their home town of Corby, will perform a combat display using authentic weapons of the period to entertain visitors at 3pm.

The fete will run from 1pm to 4pm and there will also be a barbecue, cream teas, crafts, a bouncy castle and a dancing display.

Entry is free and organisers promise fun for all the family.
