The Vikings are coming to Alnwick
In association with the Jorvik Group
Bailiffgate Museum & Gallery has brought you nationally renowned exhibitions including Illustrating Harry Potter and Stella Vine. With support from the Arts Council England, we have invested in our upstairs gallery to improve our display space and provide secure cabinets to display more valuable items, such as the diamonds which were recently part of our 100 Years of Fashion exhibition.
Next year, we are bringing a new a touring exhibition from York in association with The Jorvik Group*. The Vikings: Fact and Fiction will tell the story of Vikings in Northumberland, with a number of items on display from the amazing Jorvik collection. The exhibition will explore how the Vikings lived, how their arrival impacted on life here and evidence of their legacy in Northumberland. For our younger visitors, there will be the opportunity to dress up as a Viking and take part in a range of art and craft activities with a Viking theme.
