There was an invasion of story telling, poetry competitions, slave market, fierce street battles and the burning of the long boat on the beach.

Many attended the festival in the bitter cold and watched the burning of the boat which had been dedicated to Chris Wilkins, member of Ordgar, a re-enactment group from Norwich who sadly passed away last year. A fabulous events once again thanks to Colin Seal.
