An Evening with Eirik Bloodaxe

An Evening with Eirik Bloodaxe

As his nickname suggests, Eirik Haraldsson was a famous Viking warrior, but he was also notorious for his ruthlessness, as he was believed to have killed a number of his brothers in his rise to power as king in Norway. Forced to leave Norway by one of his surviving brothers, Eirik moved to the British Isles, establishing himself as ruler first in the Scottish islands, and then as king of Northumbria, with his seat at York. although hard facts are few and far between, Eirik was a major figure in later saga literature, along with his even more fearsome wife Gunnhild. Meet this larger-than-life Viking hero – with (of course) a drink.

On arrival you will enjoy a glass of Prosecco in our pretty Tea Rooms before your performance in the Great Hall.
