Primary History Workshop - Stone Age (Ages 7 - 11)

Wednesday 3rd August 9.00am till 11.45am

Discover our origins with a journey back in time.

In a land where we hunted and gathered, crafted our own tools, honed our survival skills and
expressed our artistic talents.
Abandon modern technology and send your children back to prehistoric times. Will your kids
survive the Stone Age?

Join Adam and James from Primary History workshops for a child friendly workshop.

If your child is between 7 and 11 years old, sign them up for a crash course on stone age survival.
While your children learn how to hunt, craft tools and adorn their caves, sit back and relax in the
Stick Fig or book yourself on a tour of Harvington Hall. Give yourself a break and let us entertain
your kids during the holiday.
