If you are all crazy about Njáls Saga, you would do well by visiting the Saga Centre this weekend, as they are hosting a Burning Njáll festival (Njálsbrennuhátíð) on site for two days. Scheduled events include staged Viking battle, Viking sports competitions, concerts, theatre, games for kids and adults of all ages and the epic climax: the re-enactment of Njáll’s murder by fire, in a specially made hut that will be used as bonfire kindling throughout the night.

The programme starts Friday July 29 at 20:30 with a concert by folk music group KORKA and continues through the weekend. Full programme available at www.njala.is
