The Centre is involved in various types of recurring events. We organise workshops for local primary schools in our Vikings and Anglo-Saxons for Schools project. We regularly organise the annual Midlands Viking Symposium in conjunction with the Universities of Birmingham and Leicester. This is a one-day conference on current research aimed at anyone who is interested. Our intermittent Norse and Viking Seminar provides a forum for academic discussion and we also organise one-off conferences such as The Viking World in 2016. Members of the Centre also meet regularly in reading and discussion groups.
