At the Event


There’s lots to get involved with at Wild North:

  • Meet magnificent birds of prey at our Falconry sessions
  • Enjoy the animal antics of our Costume Performers.
  • Try your paw at Swordplay or Kubb (Viking lawn chess).
  • Connect with nature on our Outdoor Excursions.
  • Exchange your coin for wares at our Trading Post.
  • While away the hours with Table Top Games and Stories.
  • Or, unleash your inner bard on the Open Stage, with music, singing and performance.

And after the event, why not join our trip to Beamish Museum, the award-winning Living Museum of the North?*

* Optional post con event, admission fees apply
