Visby in Sweden hosts a medieval week-long festival every year. In 2020 it was held on-line and won a tourism prize for this. The current plan is to go ahead with the fully-physical festival in 2021. In this, I introduce the viewer to the place, the festival, and I concentrate on the non-military side of the festival, which recreates the everyday lives of ordinary people of the (mainly later) middle ages.
