Chichester Roman Week

Chichester Roman Week will be taking place Saturday 27 May to Saturday 3 June and promises a host of activities for children and families.

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 centre and
the Roman bathhouse located inside The Novium Museum.

Led by The Novium Museum in partnership with the Chichester BID, the festival will feature talks, heritage trails, guided tours and family activities at cultural venues, shops and restaurants throughout the city centre. For a full programme of events please see our website www.thenovium.org
