Five years ago, James’s best friend was diagnosed with heart cancer and told he had three months to live. His last wish was to be given a full Viking burial. This is the remarkable, hilarious and heart-lifting story of how James actually gave his best mate the send-off he wanted.

From one of the UK’s most celebrated storytellers, James Rowland’s Team Viking was a breakthrough hit at the Edinburgh Fringe, combining storytelling, comedy and live music. A comic ode to death and friendship – featuring an actual Viking helmet – the show has since toured across the world to international acclaim.

‘Joyous – heart-lifting and incredibly moving… as accomplished a piece of storytelling as you could hope to see’
