Picture the clash of metal meeting metal, as sword and shield glint in the light of the sun. Think battle cries, think arrows speeding through the skies, think wild hairy warriors - yes the Vikings are coming.

This Saturday the Magnus Viking Association will let you step aboard a time machine and travel back 1,000 years, to a time when weapons were wielded and runes were read.

This event will take place at the new eco pop-up venue 'Contained', in Corporation Street, Belfast.

Visitors can take part in a children's authentic Viking battle drill and take on the real Vikings in a sword fight, help by adding a stitch to the epic Medieval tapestry, learn to write in runes, shoot real arrows from a traditional long bow, try on chain mail and helmets, see the Dark Age Blacksmith at work.

Tickets are £5 adults £2 children £10 family pass (2 adults 2 children) available at the door or online.
