A little about Jörmungandr Austr.
Our aim as a Saxon and Viking Re-enactment Society is to entertain and educate our audience - entertain via our dynamic shows of Saxon and Viking combat, and educate with our Camp Life.
We are a friendly group of people with an interest in the Saxon and Viking Age. We are always learning new things and adapting to them.
We are a politics-free Society, accepting of any race, gender and religion, so you will always feel accepted.
We are proud of our extensive Living History encampment within which we can engross ourselves in the roles of the period. We have a lot of fun within our `family` and our pleasure in what we do, our enthusiasm, and our desire to spread our knowledge and interest allows for an enjoyable, immersive experience for our public.
We attend events in both the public and private sector. We are happy to travel or be local.
We are available for Camp Life and combat displays at fairs, fetes, schools (Please see our `School Visits` page)and even private parties and functions.
We hold our own charity event every year, raising £662 last year for Waterloo Uncovered.
We can provide basic wooden props for stage or small film projects, and historical productions. Handmade to suit your requirements. Please see the `Props` page for examples. Please contact us with any enquiries.
Our Combatants are trained to a high degree of skill and safety. Led by Beowulf who brings the advantage of 25 years of experience in re-enactment, has appeared as a combat performer in the films Snow White and the Huntsman, Robin Hood, The Eagle, Faintheart and various television productions. He has choreographed fight scenes for local school productions and theatre groups.
All profits made go back into the club for the benefit of all members.
We meet at...
St.Olaves Village Hall,

"I liked your inclusivity, by the way"
- David, BAJR-British Archaeological Jobs & Resources, May 2021
"I worked with Jormungandr Austr at a Viking event held at the Last Pub Standing in March 2019. They are a hardworking, professional outfit who gave a thrilling outdoor combat demonstration despite the cold and rain. Afterwards they mingled with the public inside and talked about their work and their gear. I look forward to working with them again."
- Dr. Adrian Marsden, Archaeologist. Referencing our work with him at his talk at The Last Pub Standing in 2019
"It was a great pleasure to have the Jörmungandr Austr group set up their Saxon and Viking camp in the school grounds for the school fete. Lots of parents and children were fascinated to find out about Saxon and Viking crafts, such as weaving and leatherwork making, and loved watching the re-enactments of fight sequences. The group enjoyed interacting with the pupils and passing on their knowledge about this period of history."
- Neil Henery, Headmaster of Cringleford CE VA Primary School with reference to our visit to the school fete May 2019
