Vindolanda Trust Celebrates 50 Years ** Public Notice ** 2020 is not going how any of us had planned. You will be aware that a global pandemic is happening and Roman Vindolanda is currently closed for the protection of our staff, volunteers and visitors. It is still our birthday year - when we re-open we hope you can come and join in the celebrations with us. You can support us by buying your tickets in advance, they remain valid for 1 year from date of purchase. On 1st April please wish us happy birthday on social media, we read all your comments. Thank you. You may also wish to buy us a birthday gift - we have some suggested fun 'gifts' which give a donation to the Trust and help support us during this unprecedented time. You can find out more on our Survival Appeal page. Chesterholm has changed a lot over the years from a charming cottage, home to a family, becoming a museum and now home to some of Britain's Top Treasures. We are doing everything possible to make sure what we have built in the last 50 years is still here for the public to enjoy for the next 50 years. Booking for this event has now closed.
