About The Event
Atti is a resourceful Roman teenager whose wits more than make up for his lack of physicality, even if he sometimes bends the rules. But when his latest scheme lands him in hot water with Emperor Nero, Atti is horrified to learn of his punishment: he's forced to join the Roman army and exiled to cold, wet Britain where they are attempting to quash the rebellion. The natives are revolting, led by formidable warrior Boudicca, and a feisty young Celt is desperate to join her quest despite the protests of her overly-cautious father.
'Horrible Histories: Rotten Romans' is both fun and educational, a laugh-out-loud, lively introduction to ancient history and how it compares to the modern day.
This screening is part of Fabrica's project, PAST:PRESENT:FUTURE which celebrates and reflects on our building's history and developments in architecture and design over the years. With this screening we are looking back to the original design of our building, by Amon Wilds and his son, Amon Henry Wilds. Their work was elegant and impressive, with columns rising at the front of the church in Neoclassical style, which was much influenced by Roman architecture.
