Testimonials

"We learnt more talking to you for ten minutes than we did from watching the entire film."
Public comment received after the live cinema screening of the British Museum's Viking Life & Legend exhibition. April 2014.


"For nearly two decades the Wirhalh Skip Felagr have superbly brought to life the great Viking age of Wirral... They combine historical accuracy with enthusiasm and entertainment helping youngsters and oldsters alike to learn about our great heritage."
Prof. Steve Harding, Nottingham University, May 2015.


"This is so interesting, does your organisation have a branch in California I could join, and if not how do I set up a group back home in America?"
Public enquiry received from a tourist at our Liverpool Maritime Museum event, July 2014.


"The Wirhalh Skip Felagr invaded Ashton Park during the bank holiday and put on a fine show for the public."

Public Events Diary - Where and when to see us next.

Please note this diary page displays only those events open to the general public, not bookings for schools or other private audiences we occasionally undertake. Note also that whilst some of our events are officially booked months in advance, some bookings are more last minute, consequently it is worth checking this page regularly. As a group focused mainly on outdoor displays you may find most of our public displays fall during the warmer summer months and we are less active during the winter.
