Chichester BID Supports Roman Week

Now in it’s third year, Roman Week led by The Novium Museum in partnership with Chichester BID celebrates the city’s vast heritage.  A legion of events and activities are planned throughout the week, both at the Museum and in the city streets.  The BID will fly the flags of the Second Augustan Roman Legion in support of this cultural event and have organised the return of the ever popular artefact trail.

Such was the success of the trail last year that the BID team and The Novium have created not one, but two separate routes, enabling the accommodation of more venues for the hidden treasures. This facilitates even greater participation from the public, this year sees 27 retail businesses taking part. These treasure hunts are a fabulous way for all the family to take part and have lots of fun. With a choice of two trails, you can double the chance of winning if you do both!

Roman Week will take place from Monday 28 May to Saturday 2 June 2018 and is designed to raise interest in the historic city, it will feature re-enactments, talks, guided tours, family activities and immersive theatre, with each day themed around an aspect of Roman life.

Chichester was first established after the Roman invasion in AD43 and the Roman legacy can be found in many places, including magnificent features such as the Roman walls surrounding the city and the bath house located in The Novium Museum. Did you know that two Roman Emperors visited Chichester during the time of the Roman Empire – Claudius (10BC – 54AD) visited Britain during the invasion and remained for 16 days and Vespasian (9 -79AD) whose renown came from his military success which all started in Chichester.

This year the Novium team have themed each day of the event to focus on a different aspect of Roman life and they will be staging different activities to support these themes. Your business could capitalise on the expected additional footfall during Roman Week by putting on a Roman specific sales promotion – if you’d like some inspiration why not use one of the daily themes.
