Step back in time and enjoy the thrill of Gladiators in action on the weekend of 22nd and 23rd August. It promises to be a thrilling, action-packed day as the Gladiators take up their arms at Fishbourne Roman Palace
The Gladiators of Britannia will bring alive the sights and sounds of the Roman amphitheatre with displays of gladiatorial contests in the Palace’s formal garden. Portraying the wide range of people who found themselves in the arena, the Gladiators will use a variety of fighting techniques against each other, before the crowd decides on the fate of the loser.
The Gladiators will be on hand to talk about their equipment and training regime. There will also be lots of hands-on activities for the whole family, including sword practice, Gladiator training, tasting Roman food, dress in Roman costume and even go home with a realistic-looking fake wound!
