A Viking Christmas

Saturday 9 December, 11am-4pm
Learning Studio & University of Nottingham Museum
Free, just drop in

Did you know that before Christmas, the Vikings celebrated Yule – or Jól – in December? Join us for a fun-filled Viking Christmas at Lakeside.

Drop by the Learning Studio between 11am and 4pm to make a Viking ring to take away …a perfect Christmas present. Visit the Museum and meet two Vikings who will show you how the Vikings celebrated Jól. Children can make a puppet of one of the twelve ‘Yule-Lads’ – mischievous trolls who would visit children and leave gifts or rotten potatoes.
