Roman Gladiators

Roman Gladiators

The Roman Gladiators Return!

If you’re looking for a great educational and fun family day out this May half-term then come and see our Roman Gladiators battle! Watch provincial gladiators in action as a team of criminals, barbarians and other prisoners of war, disgraced soldiers and thrill seekers fight for the entertainment of the crowds and the Emperor. Who will live, and who will die: you decide!

The gladiators will be brought to life by Britannia, one of the largest (and oldest) re-enactment groups in the U.K., they will be demonstrating the excitement and brutality of life in the late Roman period. Britannia has worked on over 150 TV and film projects, including Ridley Scott’s Gladiator and CBBC’s Horrible Histories.

•Meet costumed re-enactors, explore the living history encampment and learn about life in Britain in the 1st century AD
•Enjoy thrilling combat displays as Roman gladiators compete for the Emperor and the favour of the crowds
•Buy your own replica Roman gladiator weapons in the shop
•Be warned, there may be (fake) blood – not for those of a sensitive disposition!
