When is Rome do as the Romans do!

Preparations are in full swing for our Local Community Day on Tuesday 27th July from 10am- 4pm.  This is a special day to celebrate with our local community the amazing Romano- British history of Chedworth Roman Villa and to share details of our exciting project supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The day will offer a host of activities from mosaic making workshops, badge making workshops, weapons demonstrations, and guided tours of the villa.  The archaeologists will also be working on uncovering the mosaics.

We would love to meet some local ‘Romans’, so why not take part in our competition for the best Roman costume!  Children and adults are invited to get in touch with their inner Roman, and get into the ‘spirit of Chedworth Roman Villa’.  Judging will take place at 2pm, where everyone will receive a special Roman reward for their dressing up efforts!

A free family vouchers for admission is available to local residents.  Vouchers have been distributed through local schools and the parish magazine network.  If you have not obtained a voucher and live locally to Chedworth Roman Villa, please contact Katie Smith, Community Outreach Officer for assistance on 01242 890256 or e-mail katie.smith@chedworthromanvilla.org.uk.

The villa will also be welcoming regular visitors to the property, who can enjoy the activities on offer but for whom the standard entry fee will apply.  National Trust members will be admitted for free, on production of a valid membership card.

The Chedworth Roman Villa team are looking forward to welcoming you and hope to see you soon.  Don’t forget to buy a unique Chedworth coin which can be thrown into the Nymphaeum and make an offering to the gods or you can keep it for good luck!
