It went medieval as Perth City commemorated the special friendship between Norway, The Isle of Man and Scotland and the end to years of fighting between the Nordic Vikings and our native Hebrideans last Sunday 21st August.
This special event celebrated both Norse and Scots culture and offered up a fun day out for the whole family.There were a whole host of activities to get involved with; from stone carving and woodcraft skills to medieval music and storytelling. Meet and greets with the Viking Strongmen, the best beard competition and spectacular Living History entertainers bringing you displays of medieval weapons, archery, music and dance.
This exciting day was started off with a visit from The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo who joined some local bands in a parade along Tay Street from the South Inch to the North Inch, culminating in a mini tattoo. This breath-taking display of Military choreography was world class and absolutely amazing!
This colourful and joyful display was an amazing day out and kicked off Perth's 2021 bid for City of culture with a bang!
