York Min­is­ter is em­brac­ing its Vik­ing roots in celebration of its Jor­vick Vik­ing fes­ti­val. The rea­son for this unique celebration dates back to an an­cient Vik­ing bene­fac­tor, with­out whom the min­istry would not sit in the lo­ca­tion that it does to­day. Fam­ily friendly events will be held from 18-20 Fe­bru­ary, in­clud­ing the re-telling of Vik­ing tales and a chance for chil­dren to cre­ate their own Vik­ing shield. Through­out the half-tem week (15-23 Fe­bru­ary) other ac­tiv­i­ties for younger visi­tors will also be avail­able.
