As anyone who’s seen Ruso and Tilla’s Facebook page will know, the sacred chickens have been consulted, the entrails have been read and the scheduled date for Chester’s Roman Festival has been declared inauspicious. It will now be taking place a week earlier – on the first weekend of June, i.e. 4th and 5th.
Sounds like hard work for the organisers, but for the rest of us it’s not so long to wait…
One thought on “Chester Roman Festival: sooner than we thought”
These Roman festivals are a great idea. I haven’t managed to get to the Chester one yet, (assuming it’s an annual event like the one in York,) but I do go to the York junketings; next year’s are in May again, but the website doesn’t seem to have an exact date yet, so I’ll keep an eye on it.
