A Roman falconry display will take place at Chester Roman Fort and Museum this weekend.

The event will take place between 11am and 5pm on Saturday July 24 and Sunday July 25 at the Hadrian's Wall fort.

An English Heritage spokesperson said: "In a world ruled by gods and goddesses, and subject to the fickleness of the natural world,  birds were incredibly important to the Romans.

"See birds of prey up close, find out why these birds were so popular in ancient Rome and watch incredible falconry displays."

Tickets are free to English Heritage members, £9.90 for adults, £6 for children aged between 5-17 years, £9 for concessions, and family tickets £25.80 for two adults or £15.90 for one adult families.
