Vikings and Orcs at the Lakeside

Battles and Demonstrations

This year in the grounds of the NEC we have opened a portal to the realms of fantasy, when you step outside you will find The Orc Encampment, where they are readying to invade the villages of free folk.

The General has brought their troops to camp here while they drill their battle skills, and gather intelligence from across the land. Meanwhile there are many spies from other races who want to see the Dark Lord return to rule. You will see them flitting into the camp to give information to the general and their lackies.

Keep your eyes peeled for Elves, Halflings and the race of men as they scurry to do the general's bidding.

Joanne from Galactic Knights has spent many years dedicated to the creation of Orc characters and armour, her work is exceptional. You will be able to meet Joanne and her team from Galactic Knights up close this year in the Orc Encampment

Stepping back through the portal over 1000 years you will find that from across the sea the vikings have made for Birmingham and they will be camped in an authentic Viking camp outside the NEC this weekend. You will be able to meet the vikings and get an insight into how they lived in history.

Ardenweard A local group, who are part of the Vikings Society are a living history group who dedicate themselves to bringing history to life, living as their Viking characters at events. You will see them living, working and training, if you are lucky you may even be able to join them for their entertainment and story telling.
