`Britannia are a real pleasure to deal with, they are not only extremely knowledgeable about their subject but also so affable to work with and a good laugh which is most important on long shoot days. They are thoroughly professional and clearly love what they do. I would not hesitate to recommend them'.
(Adam Jenkins from BAFTA-award winning series Horrible Histories).

Britannia - `Thank you so much for the Games which exceeded all my expectations'.
(Jack Lohman, Director Museum of London, following Britannia's staging of the Gladiatorial Games at London's Guildhall Yard).

`Britannia stages dramatic, authentic reconstructions of gladiatorial combat, their costumes are astonishing and they're committed to making their battles look as bloodthirsty as possible'.
(Daily Express).

`Goodness, but it's violent out there and, after the warmup; in which gladiators cut the throats of a few, unresisting, condemned prisoners; the crowd goes wild'.
(The Guardian on Britannia's Guildhall Gladiator show).

`It really paid off having Britannia on set'.
(Neil Marshall, Director, Centurion).

`Britannia - the greatest gladiators in the Roman World'.
(Caroline Lawrence, author, The Roman Mysteries).
