Chichester Roman Week

Roman Week Logo  Chichester Roman Week celebrates Chichester's Roman Heritage with a series of events every May half term. Led by The Novium Museum, the week-long event brings Roman history to life with a variety of events in and around the Chichester District, including re-enactments, talks, trails, guided tours, family activities and immersive theatre.

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.

Chichester Roman Week will return from 23 - 30 May 2020. More details and events will be posted here soon!
