Roman legions set to march on Alcester for Court Leet market

Redditch Editorial 8th Jun, 2022   0

THE legions will be marching on the Roman town of Alcester as the town prepares for a Roman weekend celebrating its ancient history.

On Saturday, June 11, the Roman Heritage Centre will throw open its doors with re-enactments, workshops and something for all ages to get involved with.

On Sunday, June 12, the annual street market returns, hosted by Alcester Court Leet.

The day will be in keeping with the Roman theme and will feature packed stalls and entertainment including a ‘Soak the Caesar’.

The fun kicks off at 12.45pm with a fancy-dress parade ready for the 1pm opening on the Church Green.

Residents, businesses and visitors are all encouraged to pull on their togas to help turn back time to Ancient Alauna and join in the festivities.
