Children can find out what life was like for a Viking at a special event over the half-term holiday.

Chesterfield Museum is inviting young people to handle Viking weapons, take part in a shield wall drill, dress up as a Viking or have a go at themed crafts.

The fun day is on Friday, February 23, from 10am to 4pm.

Admission is free although donations to cover costs will be welcome.
