Invaded by the Vikings!

Blackwell was taken over by marauding hordes at its Viking-themed summer festival, where villagers really got into the spirit of the event with some great costumes and props.

A group of re-enactors set up camp on the playing field off St Catherine’s Road, with fighting demonstrations and displays of Viking culture, while other attractions included birds of prey, a bouncy castle and play sand.

As well as their own picnics, villagers enjoyed refreshments from Tardebigge Cider and the WI Tea & Cake Tent, and there was musical entertainment from Blackwell Concert Band throughout the afternoon. The party was followed by a BBQ at Blackwell Social Club.
