The gods were smiling on the Roman Festival this weekend with glorious Summer weather and lots of visitors taking part.

The centre piece of the two-day event was the Real Live Romans, Legio II Augusta re-enacting battle scenes. In authentic battle dress they brought the fantastic selection of buildings, military equipment and household artefacts to life.

The Marquee was also busy where local residents could try their hand at various activities, including pottery and mosaic making.

There were half hour storytelling sessions that were a great success with the children and novelist Ben Kane was also talking about his book – The Forgotten Legion and The Silver Eagle.

If you enjoyed the event too – let us have your comments and photos.
