A Roman Invasion Adventure – Armchair Adventures Kids Podcast

Welcome to another exciting episode of Armchair Adventures, a kids podcast of the imagination! In this episode, Connie is joined by Uncle Chris’s community theatre group, on a time-travelling quest to ancient Britain to learn more about the Romans.

She decides to seek help from her Uncle Chris, a brilliant act-tor and ‘drama lama ding dong’. Uncle Chris is super excited to help and enlists his community theatre company to lend a hand!

Uncle Chris decides to please the crowds and become Emperor for the day, and sets the ruling leaders a challenge!
