Where to find events? (UK)
#1
Hello all!

I went to my first Medieval event yesterday and loved it. I would like to go to some Roman events but am having trouble finding them from simple google searches. I plan to go to the festival of history but would like some more to visit. Is there a list up anywehre?

Thanks x

Well, just look at the websites of the different Roman groups in the UK (Comitatus, 14th, ESG, Britannia, II AVG, Colchester, Deva come to mind). Most have a event list on their website.

The Batavians have a couple of events in 2011 also, I don't think they are online yet - but they should be soon Smile

Natalia, Jurjenius has it bang on. Check out the reenactment groups for details of the events that they'll be doing. Other groups not mentioned include Vicus and the RMRS.

Also look at English Heritage sites like Corbridge and Chedworth Roman Villa, and forts on Hadrian's Wall like Vindolanda for dates that they have events on. Other non EH Sites like Fishbourne Roman Palace also have events with Roman reenactors on over the summer.

The English Heritage Festival in July this summer will have LOTS of Roman reenactors, and lots of Roman authors talking, from Harry Sidebottom to Doug Jackson to Tony Riches to me!

Natalia, here's Britannia's events list for the year:

http://www.durolitum.co.uk/events.html

We've just had our first 5thC show of the season at Flag Fen near Peterborough, which was most enjoyable. We have another 5thC show at the start of June as part of the Chester Roman Festival, guesting with Deva Victrix, and many of our members will be travelling from all over the country for this one as there was a lot of interest in us portraying a slightly later period. Should be great fun and we're all looking forward to taking part.

After this the events until the end of August are Gladiatorials, including the highly prestigious event at the Guildhall in London on 30/31 July. We can't wait for this one and have all been preparing to make it the best that we can.

Look forward to seeing you at some of our events. Come and say hello - we are a friendly bunch Wink

We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

Sounds like its going to be a great event. With the Roman Cavalry taken part along side Invicti Iuniores Brittaniciani and Britannia - equals probably one of the best shows this year. Nice one Tongue

Picture changed as requested for those with no humour, though just for the record the picture was modified around five years ago and as a member of Conyards group at the time and the picture being mine I did have permission etc. Though to keep the piece of course I'll remove etc :roll:
