Hadrian’s Wall 1900 Festival
Hadrian’s Wall 1900 Festival is a year-long celebration, highlighting 1900 years since the construction of Hadrian’s Wall.
Famous for being the frontier of the Roman Empire, the building of Hadrian’s Wall begun in AD122, and so this year, 2022, will see hundreds of events and activities taking place across the length of the UNESCO World Heritage Site (from Wallsend to Ravenglass). The programme of events will be hosted by venues and communities across the length of the Wall, including Northumberland National Park and The Sill: National Landscape Discovery Centre.
Northumberland National Park plays a key role in looking after the Wall, monitoring the archaeology and looking after the Hadrian’s Wall Path National Trail, which is enjoyed by thousands of walkers every year. You can find out more about Hadrian’s Wall here, and you can also find an array of self-led walks to explore here.
