The Ladby King sets every sail

Saturday May 21 10.00-14.00
Saturday 21 May from 10.00-14-00 The Ladby King sets every sail at The Viking Museum Ladby. Here you can meet all the museum’s volunteer groups who work on the museum’s many different Viking projects. Come and hear, see, smell, and feel how the old Viking crafts are brought to life – and who knows – maybe you want to volunteer as well?

There is free admission for the day.

During the day (from 10.00-14.00) you can experience:

  • Launch of The Ladby Dragon (at 12.00), after which there will be worked on preparing the ship.
  • The museum’s 2 costume groups show and tell about the work of sewing Viking costumes – and it will be a surprise if interested children/adults wouldn’t be able to try on some of the clothes as well.
  • The museum’s construction group is working hard on building The Ladby King’s farm. Perhaps you have a hidden Viking craftsman inside? Feel free to come by and hear more.
  • Frej’s utility garden has just seen the light of day. If you are interested in Viking Age herbs, vegetables, fruits, etc. then there will plenty of stories – and we can use many more viking gardeners out here.
  • Our embroiderers are now working on a completely new project = tapestries for The Ladby King’s farm. Of course, they will still talk about The Ladby Tapestry, so there is plenty of opportunity to enjoy some good talks about the two projects – and maybe you would like to join the team?
  • The volunteer guides regularly show the museum to visitors. If you have a narrator in you, then you might be interested in becoming a guide out here.

From 14.00, our mead-Vikings will make a brew with campfire-hot stones spiced with (up until the day) secret ingredients and good stories. There will of course be an opportunity to taste how good the Vikings’ drinks can taste when made with passion, bonfire, and carefully chosen ingredients.

We hope for a day where people bring family, food baskets, and good mood with them out here to have a great time. There are plenty of table-bench sets spread all over our large area for exactly that purpose.
