The Romans are coming!

Romans Echoes of the Past - History Festival

Saturday 31 May, 10am - 5pm
Rosebery Park, Ashley Road, Epsom KT18 5BS
Children under 12 Free Adults £4

For one day only, the might of the Roman Empire is returning to the area.

Tremble in the face of the one of the most successful armies in history, with its soldiers feared for their toughness, discipline, stamina and war machines!

But Rome wasn’t built in a day; meet a Mosaic maker as he carefully places his tesserae. Other aspects of Roman life will include medicine, jewellery and cooking.

In all there will be over 40 re-enactors to bring the Ancient Roman Epsom & Ewell back to life.

There will also be displays of items found in local excavations, exhibitions and talks. Budding young Centurions can hone their skills in a series of drills and games.
