Voyage across New Mills, over to Thornsett where Shield Tree Wood lies nestled on the edge of Thornsett Fields Farm and discover all that is small and beautiful in our Viking Forest School.

For New Mills Festival Fringe, we invite you to creep round the land of the giants to unearth the small creatures hidden in the wild and rich landscape of Jotunheim. Be careful not to let the giants see you!

Our Viking dwarfs don't like the sun and stay hidden underground,  and we need help to build them some shady dens, so they can come to the ground and join in the fun. Have a go at lighting your own small fire and taste some Viking campfire food, around our fire circle. Make your own Mjolnir- Thor’s hammer - or Viking arm ring using tools and natural materials, to take home to your settlement. Hear a story from Viking mythology about the gods and goddesses, Odin, Loki, Thor and Freya in our very own Asgard under Yggdrasil, the ash tree of life.

Family friendly. Wear long trousers, wellies or boots. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Sorry this event is now SOLD OUT!
