Cave Painting

Tuesday 24 October, 11am-3pm, £5 per child

In prehistoric times, early men crawled down into the darkest caves and used light from primitive candles to paint pictures of themselves and the animals they hunted. They left behind a vivid record of their way of life and some clues of what they believed in. Discover how and why these paintings were created. Then by flickering light try to create your own cave painting in our very own ‘caves’.

Hear tales of local folk who won’t stay dead, ghostly coach crashes and discover the story of Joan Butts, Ewell’s witch. Are you brave enough to dare to tread where the Resurrection Men once stood, while you learn about their grisly trade? Experience for yourself what it was like to be imprisoned in Ewell’s 18th century jail - be careful you don’t get left behind!
