Hadrian Festival

Roman Gladiators will be battling for ultimate supremacy at Hadrian Festival this year and the hope is that the visiting Emperor Hadrian, his cohort and – of course – you will be entertained too.

The team at Segedunum Roman Fort will also be joined by their friends from Tide and Time Events, which will herald the return of the Mercatus (Roman Market), so prepare to feast your eyes over the heritage products, artisan refreshments and goods on display and available to buy.

This event is part of the programme of activities supporting the British Museum’s Roman Empire: Power & People exhibition which is on public display 30 May – 13 September 2015. Don’t forget to drop in to the exhibition during your visit.
