Gladiator Weekend at Chedworth Roman Villa

Join us for a thrilling weekend of training and combat with the Gladiators. Father's Day Weekend is one of the highlights of the Chedworth calendar.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Roman reenactors, Leguio Secunda Augusta, will be returning to Chedworth Roman Villa on 15 and 16 June 2024. The Gladiator show over Father’s Day weekend has become a tradition at the Villa and is one of the highlights of the Cotswolds summer calendar. You will be able to enrol in Gladiator School to hone your fighting skills, watch exciting military demonstrations and attend the ultimate Gladiator show to find out who the Gladiators were and where they came from. As it is Father's Day Weekend, every show will end with families being able to take on the dads in 'combat'. The main shows take place at 11:00 and 14:30 each day with a surprise show around lunchtime.

You will be able to dress up and interact with the gladiators between performances and learn more about the Roman way of life. Bring a picnic, pick up something from the café or treat yourself with a spoil from the shop. Entry to the villa 10am. Normal admission charges apply, with free entry for National Trust members. No booking required.
