Hour or Two

Event Volunteer - Roman Lates

We’re looking for volunteers to assisting with the visitor experience at this inaugural event. the event takes place on Saturday the 18th August and you will be needed between 5 PM and 10:30 PM.

 

This is the first ever chance for adults to relax and join us after hours; a rare opportunity to explore our museum, galleries and heritage site in the summer evening. 

Listen to live music, atmospheric tales, themed talks, take part in immersive activities and even 'laern yoursel Latin' late into the evening.

Roman Lates is themed around Roman fun and games, but there'll also be Roman food demos and samples to try, which you can wash down with a glass of something chilled from the bar. 

For participants who'd like to come dressed in Roman costume there'll be a prize on the night for the most authentic apparel.
