Hadrian's Wall 1900 Festival and Our Favourite Roman Sites.

2022 sees the festival of Hadrian's Wall 1900, which celebrates 1900 years since the building of one of our greatest landmarks. We love visiting Hadrian's wall and exploring the area and imagining what life must have been like back then. As home educators we have covered Romans in depth and they were really interesting people.

What is Hadrian's Wall 1900 festival?

Hadrian’s Wall 1900 will celebrate the 1900th anniversary of the beginning of the construction of Hadrian’s Wall. It will commemorate 1900 years of history of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, recognised here in the North East, and around the world as a major landmark of huge historical importance.

Throughout 2022, a programme of events and activity which celebrates 1900 years will be presented by local societies, interest groups, community and arts organisations, local authorities, visitor attractions, venues and individuals. This will be across the length of Hadrian’s Wall, from Wallsend to Ravenglass.

From community events to high profile arts commissions, Hadrian’s Wall 1900 will provide opportunities for everyone to celebrate this World Heritage Site whether it be Roman history, dark skies, the natural environment, cultural diversity, food, music, the arts and more.
