The Creation of Campaign Canute

Campaign Canute was born out of the devastation to JORVIK Viking Centre caused by flooding that affected many areas of York at Christmas 2015. In the first instance, it was set up to raise funds to help re-imagine the popular visitor attraction for the 21st century, which proved to be very successful, raising over £1.5 million from supporters all over the world.
