Roman Festival 2023

Saturday 23rd September from 10.30am to 3:30pm

Book this event

Our second Roman Festival will include live action demonstrations from the Roman Cavalry by Equistry, marching and battle sequences from Magister Militum, Roma Antiqua and Legio VI Victrix.

These well known re-enactment groups will also have military encampments that demonstrate the changes in military equipment and Roman life throughout the 400 years of Roman occupation of Britannia.

Being experimental archaeologists these groups live and breathe life in the ‘Legion’ of Roman Britannia, their equipment is as correct as current knowledge allows and they will happily chat about any aspect of Roman life.
