“Absolutely brilliant! Best interactive performance I’ve seen kids totally entranced. Every child had a role”

West Dene PS

Child in Roman Britain

CONTENT: 4 professional actors and the pupils go back along a time-line to Roman Britain. What is the difference between an invader and a settler?

Four scenes are created following the fortunes of Governor Platius and his family. The first group create Life in a Roman Villa — food, family traditions, education, and household roles are acted out. Then the family are summoned North. They visit A Roman Town, Colchester, and its market, theatre and gladiator school., as well as the Temple. The Governor’s wife visits the Baths. They finally arrive at Hadrian’s Wall, Road Building is supervised, despite trouble from local tribes.

Finally we see new recruits being trained to join the Roman Army to combat the Picts and defend the Wall until the Romans are recalled to Rome.
