Join us for a Roman style festive celebration!
Discover how the Romans celebrated Saturnalia and take part in some festive Roman activities. There’s a chance to create a sparkly seasonal wreath, play Roman games and dress in Roman finery. Then, compose your own witty Saturnalia greeting on a papyrus scroll before making a Saturnalia candle to take away. Visitors will also have the opportunity to meet our resident Roman Soldiers and re-enactors from the Butser IX Legion and discover more about Roman life. Finish the day with a warming cup of mulsum while you browse for festive gifts in our museum shop.
