Join us for our exclusive evening event – Verulamium Late

Join us on the evening of November 16th for a chance to enjoy the Roman collection at the Verulamium Museum in peace away from children and crowds.

Sip a drink of your choice and enjoy some canapes before viewing the fascinating artefacts at this exclusive event.

You will be able to view some of the finest Roman mosaics and wall plasters outside the Mediterranean, recreated Roman rooms, the Sandridge hoard of gold coins and a host of other objects that bring to life our city in Roman times.

All funds raised will support Verulamium at Play to create a new play area in Verulamium Park.

Fabulous vibe at the Rose and Crown FUNdraiser Evening

What a fabulous vibe there was at the newly refurbished Rose and Crown on September 21st.

A glass of something chilled, catching up with friends, and listening to wonderful live music from acoustic duo Supermoon. Verulamium at Play’s chilled fundraiser evening was enjoyed by all and we raised £££s for the new playarea!

Thanks to all who came and supported us, we truly appreciate it.
