Roman Road Team Gears up for the Year

The Roman Road Team have got a new holding page prior to the launching of a website for the Roman Road  – click on it below and sign up to receive their updates.



Meanwhile we’ve taken the liberty of  lifting the content below from their recent newsletter



Roman Road Festival 2014

A group of volunteers is hard at work organising the Roman Road Festival for this summer. The festival will be spread over eight consecutive days at the end of June and beginning of July, and includes plans for cultural events, a heritage trail and a street party.


Of course, it’s all subject to licence at the moment, but there’s an awful lot to do so let us know if you would like to volunteer to help out with preparations or on the day.


We are looking for businesses to host events – music, talks, and activities – so please contact us if you are a business who would like to do that.


We’d also like to hear from you if you have any suggestions of names and places of special interest to include in the Roman Road Heritage Trail.


And though it was a while ago, it’s not too late to thank our volunteers  – Annabel, Charlie, Christina and Jammie – who made the Christmas event such a success.


Roman Road website

We are increasing our web-presence with the help of a growing team of volunteers, led by Tabitha Stapely.


We will shortly be launching a new website to promote the Roman as a place to shop, trade and meet-up. If you’re a business and we haven’t contacted you yet, don’t worry, we will.


In the meantime, check out the new holding page at and if you haven’t already, please sign up to our various social media platforms:

If you’d like to help with the on-going design and development for the website or if you are a blogger who would like to write for our blog about Roman Road and Bow, please contact Tabitha on Twitter @TabithaStapely or at

Get involved

This group is a non-profit community group representing the residents and businesses of Roman Road. We are run by volunteers alone and we’re always looking for help. Being a Roman Road team volunteer is a great way to meet new people who live in Bow, put names to faces you see in the street, and generally have a lot of fun.


Whether you are a resident or a business we’d love to hear from you. If you’d like to volunteer for the festival or for the website, or just want to find out more, come to our open meetings which we hold every couple of weeks, or send us an email Everyone is welcome.
