Roman 'Christmas' event at Castleford Museum

 A special event  at Castleford Forum Museum this Saturday - Saturnalia.

Saturnalia is the best-known Roman festival which ran from  17th to 23rd December.
It was a time of gift-giving, feasting, and time to  decorate the house with greenery - sound familiar?

Come to Castleford Museum between 10 and 3pm this Saturday to find out how the Romans celebrated!  Meet a Roman soldier, hear some Roman stories and make yourself a Roman mosaic coaster to take home - the perfect last-minute Christmas gift!
