Overview

Part of Hadrian's Cavalry exhibition, we celebrate Flavinus, Hexham’s famous Roman Cavalryman, whose 8ft tall, 2000 year old tombstone stands proudly at the foot of the Night Stair, Hexham Abbey. There will be a host of Roman activities and displays, and market stalls and food to match! Flavinus Day will see a host of free, inclusive activities and entertainment taking place for all ages – the event appeals to young and old, avid history fans, and total Roman novices. There will be a programme of displays, talks, demos and workshops, as well as hands on activities for children such as shield drills and flour grinding! Tours of the Abbey will be available, focusing on the incredible collection of Roman relics including the Flavinus tombstone itself. The Refectory Cafe will be serving a special menu of Roman food for the day, recreating modern takes on the food that Flavinus and his regiment would have lived on.
