Ribchester Roman Festival and Excavation 2017

Two re-enactment societies will once again mount displays on Ribchester Playing Field on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th July. Meet legionaries and Roman citizens face to face as the Roman Military Research Society and Romanorum march into Bremetennacum Veteranorum. On show will be exciting military displays, including the firing of artillery, archery and the Roman Cavalry, along with colourful demonstrations of everyday life. There will be opportunities for children to dress up in Roman armour and our famous Roman snacks will be available. Displays open at 11am. First performance at 12.00pm. Admission charges: Adult £6.00 Concessions £4.50 Children £3.50 The price includes admission to the Museum. This weekend is also an excellent opportunity to see the 2017 excavation in progress. The dig is located behind the Museum on the site of the Northern Gateway and archaeologists from the University of Central Lancashire will be on hand to explain the exciting finds as they are discovered.
