Chester Roman Festival

Postby Nerva on Tue Jun 30, 2009 9:10 pm

Salvete Omnes!

This years Chester Roman Festival will take place on Saturday the 18th and Sunday the 19th of July. We'll be meeting up with our brothers from Deva Victrix (Legio XX VV) and our good friends of Legio VIII MGV. This will be the first time in almost 2000 years Gladiatorial games will be held in the amphitheatre.

Salvete Omnes!

We'll less than a week to go. Apart from drill display, an artillery competition etc. there will be a full contact gladitorial competition at this years event. We'll take plenty of pictures and video (of me getting killed many times :D ) and post up when we're back. I love multiperiod events but nothing quite comes close to a totally immersive event of your own period.

Salvete Omnes!

Thanks to the men and women of Deva Victrix and Legio VIII MVG for such an enjoyable week end. Thanks also to our own lads for your sterling work, it wasn't easy getting 14 legionaries to Chester I can tell you. The overall turn out was about 26 legionaries and 10 Britain's wich is just about all that can be managed in the confined space of the amphitheatre I'll put up a link to the pictures once they are posted.
