CREATIVE DIRECTOR

JORVIK VIKING FESTIVAL -2017

A celebration of Viking Culture on The Eye of York.

Jorvik Festival is an annual Viking festival that celebrates the history and cultural significance of the Vikings. Over 40,000 people visit the festival every year. I was invited to be the Creative Director of the Viking Feast & the Viking Finale,  an outdoor event with over 350 performers retelling the story of Eric the Bloodaxe.


HONOUR Salford Quays was a large-scale outdoor music, digital art and dance event on the Greater Manchester waterfront, featuring several visual artists alongside hundreds of choral singers. The free event gave the audience a breathtaking window into the WW1 conflict and offered an opportunity for communal reflection on the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of World War One.

The project is an ongoing event to commemorate the centenary of WW1 inspired by the life and work of Hedd Wyn.
