Celebrating the Impact of The Vikings.


The Follow The Vikings Roadshow is a Creative European Project that celebrates the cultural and historic impact of The Vikings.  Craig Morrison, the creative director of the Roadshow, has commissioned several contemporary artists from all over Europe including actors, musicians dancers and  film makers to create a visual celebration of Viking heritage.


Performed live at 12 important Viking locations, each show will be unique - some will be held in exterior locations, while others held in interior venues. All will use modern projection technology in a new and captivating way, producing a pan-European complement to already existing Viking markets and events.


Working with staff from each participating partner, each site will seek professional and amateur artists and performers, as well as members of the public, both young and old, to be involved in their local event.


These events will, therefore, be more than just a performance by a visiting troupe of artists.  They will support the development of new or enhanced career skills for the professional artists and the partners’ staff.  They will support the artists in international co-operation and open opportunities to internationalise their careers.  This will also offer opportunities for members of the local communities to acquire new skills that can be used to further their careers in whatever artistic field they wish to pursue.
