Bamburgh Castle enjoyed a busy bank holiday weekend with two special events.

By day, visitors were taken back to the days of the Vikings at the fortress, famous for being the inspiration for Bernard Cornwell’s epic historical book and film series, The Last Kingdom.

Onlookers watched as re-enactors from the Bloodaxe Vikings showed off their military might with weaponry demonstrations in the Warrior Arena, as well as showing a more domestic side with cooking, craft making and story telling.

And on Saturday night, the castle held its latest outdoor cinema screening when Mamma Mia had cinema-goers singing and dancing along to the Abba-inspired musical.
