What is it?
The stunning ruins of Corbridge Roman Town play host to a spectacular weekend of Gladiatorial combat and Roman military might. Cheer on your champion as fully armoured Gladiators take on their opponents in this ancient sport. Roman soldiers will also be put through their drill accompanied by a pair of mounted Roman cavalry troopers with a display of equestrian skills and weapons handling. There’s also a chance for junior Romans to try a Gladiator and military drill under the watchful eye of the Lanista and Centurion. There will also be demonstrations of burials and rituals!
