York Museum presents the Eboracum Roman Festival 31 May-2 June

After three successful years, the Eboracum Roman Festival will be back in the York Museum Gardens with an even bigger and better programme of family-friendly activities and events.

From 31 May - 2 June, expect to see military parades, birds of prey displays, a living history camp, guided walks, expert talks, and much more.

Visit the Yorkshire Museum to discover York’s Roman history through some of Britain’s greatest Roman treasures:
•walk on a genuine Roman mosaic floor
•see the statue of Mars – the finest example of a Roman statue ever found in Britain
•marvel at the marble head of Constantine
•stand at the tombstone of Lucius Duccius Rufinus, Standard Bearer of the Ninth Legion

Special family-friendly activities will take place throughout the museum--see if you measure up for the Roman Army, make mini catapults and more.

On Saturday and Sunday, don’t miss the Roman Parades as the Roman Emperor, six Roman Legions, and Roman civilians march through the iconic streets of York.

Activities in the Museum Gardens and the Roman Parades are free. Museum admission applies to activities in the Yorkshire Museum.
