Walking Event

Walking Event


Saturnalia was the major annual festival of the Romans, an event of unrestrained merrymaking when slaves were temporarily released and reversed roles with their masters. Enjoy Baccanalian frolics and a plethora of winter warmer ales, with a Saturnalia walk using part of the Roman road which passes close to Llanwrtyd. £10,000 reward for the return of the lost "Eagle of the 9th Legion".

Various winter real ales will be on tap at the hostelries around the town, and there is food available cooked to original recipes by the Roman gourmet Apicius. You can celebrate, commiserate, or simply compare battle scars at the Neuadd Arms Hotel, which hosts a Toga Party with live music on the Saturday night, with more prizes for the best (not necessarily the most revealing) togas.
