Chichester Roman Week

Discover Chichester's rich Roman heritage this half term

Chichester Roman Week is a 7 day festival celebrating Chichester's Roman Heritage, from Saturday, May 27 to Saturday, June 3 2017.

Chichester was first established as Noviomagnus Reginorum, which translates to 'New market of the proud people' after the Roman invasion in AD43. Their legacy can be found across the city, including magnificent features such as the Roman walls surrounding the city and the Roman bathhouse located in The Novium Museum.

Led by The Novium Museum the festival will feature talks, heritage trails, guided tours and family activities at cultural venues, shops and restaurants throughout the city centre.
