Lunt Roman Festival 2015

Lunt Roman Festival 2015
30 & 31 August


Sunday 30th August and Monday 31st August

10.00 am – 4.30 pm

Join us this summer at the Lunt Fort Festival as we bring history to life.

Immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of Roman battle as you witness the struggles of the Roman Batavians. Experience Iron Age living history in the Dumnonika camp, be enthralled by battle re-enactment from the Britannia group (as seen on Horrible Histories) and encounter classic early Roman soldiers in the form of the Batavians.

Breathing life into the history of the site, for the first time in over 2000 years, the Roman Cavalry will be back at the Lunt!
Famous for its surviving gyrus, a wooden circular structure designed for training horses, join us in this unique opportunity to watch horseback demonstrations and infantry fighting.

The festival offers a fun and interactive insight into the early history of Coventry, from the Iron Age to the end of the Roman occupancy all in a single weekend! 

This will be an action packed day with interactive battle drills, realistic camps and costumed interpreters to bring the Lunt Roman Fort back to life.

Refreshments will be available on site.
