An Evening with Boudica

An Evening with Boudica

The story of Boudica, although much of it is cloaked in poor evidence is still extraordinary. Britannia was a remote outpost of the Roman Empire and in the early years of Roman occupation was still divided into many Celtic tribal kingdoms. Among these, in the part that we now know as East Anglia, was the kingdom of the Iceni, whose warrior queen Boudica stood against the Roman invaders when her male counterparts were too weak to do so.

This inspiring and mighty warrior was on a mission of revenge for the rape of her daughters and possessed an absolute determination to teach the Romans on her land a sharp lesson. Gathering support from other Celtic tribes, the red-headed queen swept across eastern England, and came close to driving the Romans out altogether. In the end she fell, but her glorious rebellion sent shock waves across the mighty Roman Empire. Guest should not arrive before 2:00pm as they will not be able to access the castle grounds or building before this time.

On arrival you will enjoy a glass of Prosecco in our pretty Tea Rooms before your performance in the Great Hall.
