Vikings will be the special guests at Eye's Family Fun Day held at the Community Centre.

The Ordgar Dark Age re-enactors will bring the rich Saxon and Norse cultures of Dark Age East Anglia to life through combat displays and living history demonstrations.

The group, made up of people from Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire, are a non-profit group who meet regularly for combat training and kit making.
