Back to the 1900 Festival

About Saturnalia

Saturnalia was possibly the most popular Roman festival and is most closely associated with Christmas and merrymaking.  The word ‘Saturnalia’ meanings ‘an occasion of wild revelry or indulgence’

Throughout December we are inviting anyone and everyone to join the festivities and deliver their own Saturnalia celebrations, events and activities to make this a truly wall-wide knees up.

Anyone can deliver activity – individuals, groups, businesses – and at any scale.

It can be a public event with tickets, or just with a group of friends, a business venture or a solo activity. All activities will be listed on the Hadrian’s Wall 1900 Festival website to either advertise them or document them or both.

If you’re interested in delivering a Saturnalia activity, no matter how big or small, please complete the form below to register your interest:
