Everybody loves a festival and the Romans were no exception.

So we’ve teamed up with Time and Tide events to celebrate everything from ‘Veneralia’ (the festival of Venus Verticordia – goddess of love and marriage) to Cerialia (the festival and games in honour of Ceres, the goddess of agriculture and fertility) over the Easter bank holiday weekend.

Visit the Roman market or Mercatus and try and buy delicious goods. Watch a performance by Roma Antiqua and if the weather is kind to us, see a magnificent weaponry display.
