HISTORICAL REENACTMENT
Roman Festival
12 and 13 September

On Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 September, The Roman Festival, a historical and family event, returns to the Roman Theatre of Orange. Historical re-enactors will occupy the monument to demonstrate the lifestyle of the legionaries who founded Orange.

Why a Roman Festival ?

The powerful, conquering Roman army, a vital contributor to the splendour of Rome, allowed the Romans to dominate the Mediterranean world from the 2nd century BC to the 5th century. They founded many towns, including Orange, in the year 35 BC. On 10 September, in memory of the classical era, hundreds of re-enactors invite you to immerse yourself in Roman times and discover the daily life of the legionaries who founded Arausio, which would later become the town of Orange. Against the unique backdrop of the theatre which has been classified as a UNESCO World Heritage site, the "Roman legionaries" will show you their passion for the life of the encampment and their combat techniques. The history-filled rendezvous, taking place this day, is set to be a highlight of the autumn season, for both children and their parents.

Programme

A Roman encampment reconstructed on the stage of the Roman Theatre to learn about the life of the legionaries on campaign, and all the civil and military professions linked to the life of the encampment | Ceremony of the imperial cult at the heart of the Roman encampment, during which the priests of the cult give a ceremony in honour of the Emperor Augustus | Various demonstrations (Roman training, military kit, etc.) | Workshops for children.

Enjoy the new 2020 highlight with Ridley Scott Gladiator peplum on Sauturday 12th September, 9.15 PM.
