Event description
Io Saturnalia! Come along and find out how the Romans celebrated the midwinter feast of Saturnalia.

About this event

Long before the Christians adopted this week long festival for their own purposes it was a time associated with much merrymaking, eating and drinking and of course gift giving! Candles and flames were a feature of mid winter celebrations as in many cultures today. Social rules were relaxed and slaves were even allowed to exchange roles with their masters. Local Romans Geminus (and maybe also Cinnama) will be pleased to show how they are making preparations for the feast and to share some of their favourite family recipes of the food that they have prepared especially for Saturnalia.

£8. Museum open from 7pm, talk starts at 7.30pm.
