Between lockdowns in 2020, Britannia did a safely-run living history event at Fishbourne Roman Palace.It was our only event of 2020 and we were proud to have supported such an excellent organisation.
We adhered to the government guidelines at the time, wore masks with our logo and maintained a distance of 2m between us and the public by the use of carefully placed barrier rope.
The client provided handwashing facilities on this occasion, but items were only demonstrated and not handed to the public at this event. We also gave out information graphics on the Roman army for children to colour.
The client was delighted with our outdoor living-history presentations and the event was a great (and safe) success in these difficult times. We are currently working on Britannia Season 3 for Sky. (That TV show with the same name as our group…. what a coincidence!). We look forward to returning to our usual run of shows as soon as it’s safe to do so.
Until then we hope our clients, audience and friends stay safe and well.

Britannia events 2020
Due to the worldwide Covid 19 pandemic, most of our events for the early part of this year are cancelled. As yet, we have no confirmation on any events for the later part of the year. I’m sure people will understand that these are exceptional circumstances. Even if travel restrictions are lifted, it may be quite a while before public events are allowed to take place, so historical re-enactment and living history presentations, (where people gather in numbers) are not likely to happen soon.
Yep… this kind of thing is understandably low on everyone’s priority lists for things to do.
We hesitate to use the phrase ‘when things return to normal’ because if you know us… we’re not sure what normal is anyway!
However, we hope to have a full calendar of events for 2021.
We will let you know.
In the meantime, we wish all our clients, public, other re-enactment groups or confused people that have clicked on our site by mistake, the best of health and happiness in these rather odd times.
Dan and all in Britannia
