Become an ARP Friend

We would like you all to become a Friend of the ARP by committing to an annual subscription of £10 per adult. This will ensure you continue to receive our emails, newsletters and news.

Last year, nearly 150 of you became Friends. Thank you so much for helping us. We do hope you will think about becoming a Friend again this year.

You will be given a card with your name on. Should you wish to participate in the Aylsham Roman Experience August 2021,* there will be a charge but at a reduced rate. You will also be contacted prior to our full mailing list. Some of you, though, may not wish to dig, sieve, wash etc, but simply be a part of ARP, for which we thank you very much. You will be able to come along and have a look at what’s been found, have a guided tour, buy one of the promotional items we will have on  sale, at any time you like during August.  The cards can be picked up from any of our events or during August itself.

*Please note, that at the time of writing, we are keeping our fingers crossed that our August Dig will take place this year, due to the continued concern with coronavirus virus. If it does, it could look very different to what is set out below. We will email later in the year with updates. Thank you.*
