Big Roman Week

The Big Roman Week is an annual festival, held each September.

It marks the birthday of Emperor Antoninus Pius (born 19 September 86AD) – who built his Roman frontier, The Antonine Wall, across Falkirk district. Working with partners, Big Roman Week delivers a series of events to get people to explore and enjoy local history.

The Festival is co-ordinated by volunteers from The Friends of Kinneil (with support from a number of partners).
