Museum to host Roman themed event for Action for Children
The Romans will be returning to St Albans at a special event organised to help young children with learning difficulties and health needs.
Businesses and local communities are invited to Captured at Verulamium where they will become captured ancient Britons.
Armed with just a mobile phone, laptop, and list of business and colleague contacts the team have the challenge of raising at least £500 for children’s charity Action for Children.
Event organiser and Fundraiser for Action for Children, Jo Redhead said: "This will be a fun day with a difference. It’s a chance for local businesses and community organisations to raise vital funds for vulnerable young people in Hertfordshire while networking in a superb setting.
"Funds raised will help young people socialise with their friends in a safe and homely environment, and help give families a well-earned break from their caring responsibilities."
The day will set the scene of The Romans pursuing Caratacus and the captives won’t be released until either Caratacus surrenders or they raise their £500 ransom fee.
Captured at Verulamium will take place on Thursday February 21 in Verulamium Musuem, St Michael’s Street, from 10am until 1pm.
