Description

We cordially invite you to Stonea Camp for our Open day on Sunday 22nd September 2019 from 10am - 4pm which is free to all and all are welcome!
How many times have you driven past the signs to Stonea Camp and thought to yourself, ‘I really must visit!’ But you’ve never got around to it? Have you ever driven past and known the site’s famous for a reason, but unsure why? After all Time Team’s featured the site in a special, so there has to be a reason why!
Well it is historically important and it does involve Romans and the Iceni, so potentially Queen Boudicca too. Later in history there’s even a connection with the Civil War and Cromwell.
Do you want to know more?
Then join us on Sunday 22nd September 2019 between 10am - 4pm. We will bring Iceni life under Roman rule to life for you.
There will be guided tours, storytelling, re-enactors, history of fire through the ages, refreshments, conveniences and first aiders. Textile artists ( a TV presenter ), a reproduction of the Bayeux Tapestry (in the morning). However there will still be lots to do in the afternoon.
Stay for lunch and enjoy pizza from the Al Fresco Dining Company as they create masterpieces from a wood fired burner on their 110 Land Rover.
Parking is available on site, but for those who prefer FACT will be providing a shuttle bus running regularly from March to pick up and drop off visitors.
We will have archaeologists, historians, bushcrafters and more.
The summer holidays maybe over. You still have this wonderful event to look forward to, kindly funded by the Care Network.
If you’re concerned about the weather in the open, shelter will be provided. If mobility is a problem, there will plenty of seating areas and viewing will be on as flat an area as possible.
Do layer up and wear suitable shoes for the event.
In attending this event, you automatically give permission for your photograph to be taken or to be filmed. The images and film may be used in promotional footage in the future.
Any questions, please do get in touch.
We look forward to hearing from you and most of all, we look forward to seeing you at the Open Day!
