Tales and Ales, Runes and Tunes


Our Viking based show draws from 850AD to 950AD.

Settle in with gentle music in the background whilst performers mix and mingle sharing music, knowledge and giving opportunity for some guests to wonder at the future with rune casts.

With traditional Norse music played on authentic instruments such as the no-holes flute (an amazing instrument traditionally made from a single branch of birch bark slipped from the branch) and it's evocative haunting music hypnotises, Stringed instruments such as the kantele add more lively music.

Once your guests have their food the storyteller kicks off his set. Featuring tales of the lively adventures of the Norse Gods and Goddesses and other myths and legends of the period and regions.

After the tales he will lead you in a fun blot to Braggi - the highly enjoyable "Toast, Boast or Brag" ceremony with the mead horn (mead supplied as part of show - please supply accurate guest numbers when booking).

Then at then end of the evening either simply enjoy more music or your guests can be lead in simple fun circle dances.



This show will fit around either a plated meal of up to 4 courses, a standard feast or a buffet. Menu suggestions available.
