This year's Malton Roman festival will take place on July 21st. It's organised by the Malton Museum, and the setting is a field on the site of the Malton (Derventio) Roman fort. There'll be all the delights of previous years: re-enactors (including cavalry,) stalls, information about Malton's Roman past, kids' activities, food and drink, and authors selling their signed books. Sadly I shan't be among them this year but I know it will be a great day.
